Vintage Cake Forks. Complete Set of Six 1920s English Dessert Forks. Very Shiny English Silver Plated Pastry Forks For A Afternoon Tea Party

Description ~

These cake forks are so elegant and shiny. A complete set of 6 English cake forks, in classically elegant design, making them perfect for a vintage tea party. They are stylish and pretty enough to work well with any era of tea party plates and china. This is a complete set of 6 forks which are very elegant indeed.

The reverse of each fork is stamped 'William. R. Humphreys & Co. EPNS' (electro plated nickel silver). They are also stamped with a registered design number. William R Humphreys & Co were a Sheffield silversmith and cutlery manufacturer operating 1889 - 1925. They are excellent quality and a lovely weight, not thin and flimsy. Sheffield is my local city and England's leading metalworking and cutlery manufacturing city, so I am very proud to be able to offer complete set of cake forks in my shop.

This set would make a perfect vintage birthday or gift for a tea and cake fan, or a baker! Their elegant design would set your pretty afternoon tea cakes and pastries off with style and would work especially well at tea time or at a spring or summer garden party.

Please ensure you read the condition and dimensions sections below before ordering.

Condition ~

These forks are in excellent vintage condition. They are still very bright and shiny and would look fantastic on a vintage tea plate with a pretty cake. There are some very small areas of barely noticeable wear, such as tiny scratches that have arisen through normal use. This is very minor and perfectly normal. Please just ask if you would like further photos. Any further wear is commensurate with age and use.

Dimensions ~

Each fork measures 14cm in length (5 1/2 inches) approx.

Packaging and Shipping ~

Your forks will arrive carefully, with FREE beautifully gift wrapped packaged in vintage style brown paper and ribbon.

**FREE CHRISTMAS GIFT WRAPPING! Just select the shipping upgrade at the checkout!**

**Please read my shop and shipping policies before ordering**. I will combine postage wherever possible on multiple orders to give you the fairest postage price and always refund shipping overcharges. Please contact me before ordering if you would like a combined shipping quote for multiple items and I'll be happy to provide one.

**If you are resident outside of the UK and nervous about ordering china from abroad please don't be. I take tremendous care to wrap all my items to the highest standard regardless of the distance they travel, near or far, by land or air. Please see my customer reviews, which confirm how well and carefully I package my orders and, of course, if you have any concerns or questions just ask and I will get back to you straight away**

Please note, it is not possible to reserve items for first time customers, I'm very sorry. I can only reserve an item for a repeat customer, for a strict 24 hour period only.
All orders are gift wrapped in vintage style brown paper and pretty ribbon as standard. There is no extra charge for this. Christmas gift wrapping can also be selected for an order at the checkout. I reuse packaging boxes and filling materials wherever possible, for environmental reasons and to keep costs down, but please rest assured that your order will still look smartly gift wrapped.
**Please see my shipping policies for full details.**

Items priced at over £20, or equivalent value in the customer's currency, will only be sent 'tracked and/or signed for' to addresses outside of the U.K, (depending on availability in the destination country), or 'signed for' to UK addresses.

Orders of multiple items that total more than £20 in value (or equivalent amount in the customer's currency) will also only be sent 'tracked and/or signed for' internationally, or 'signed for' to UK addresses.
