For sale here is an antique beef fork or sliced meat serving fork together with a pierced serving spoon for serving sliced meat that needed to be drained before serving. These were made to commemorate the birth and baptism of Princess Juliana of the Netherlands. The set was made for tourists and Royalty watchers, who visited the city of The Hague, to celebrate the birth and baptism of Holland’s new princess. They are about 8 in length and weigh about 130 grams.

In 1909 the former Dutch Queen Juliana was born & baptized in the city of Gravenhage (The Hague). The city arms of Gravenhage are the stork and storks deliver babies. The crown and lion are symbols for the Dutch royalty, the girl on a swing symbolic for happy childhood and a dining & drinking seen symbolic for good life and happiness.

There are some German like marks on the fork; 13 and N being pseudo marks in the Hanau style and put on by the Dutch maker; H. Hooijkaas also known as; Fa. (firm) H. Hooijkaas c.v. Schoonhovense Zilverfabriek. His mark, being a capital letter H in a square, at the left side of the tavern scene of the fork. The mark used 1909/1924. One theory for pseudo marks says; pseudo marks put on to pretend/indicate antique silver and thus free of import duty or reduced import duty to be paid.

This particular set made for export; lion passant with the export key for 833/1000 or 83.3% pure silver and date letter Z for 1909.
