During the Victorian period there was a tool for every job- forks existed who's sole purpose was to hold lemons, retrieve pickles from the jar, scoop mustard, another for caviar, a vase for holding the celery...endless and remarkable. This one could be either a meat fork or a pickle fork; I'm more inclined to think the latter as it's tarnish is high to the top, suggesting it was often held there rather than gripped as you do with a meat serving fork.

Dates from the 1900s to the 1920s. Electroplated (a method developed in 1805!) and perfectly usable at the meal table, in art projects or just as display.
