Fabulous ornate Mr. and Mrs. wedding cake forks with gold wash tines. High relief shell pattern adorns the tips of the handles. Perfect for a beach or yacht club wedding.

A Simply divine and unique example over 100 year old American craftsmanship. Although time worn their imperfections are outweighed by their overall beauty.

Rare gold washed tine forks are the Regent pattern and were designed in 1902 by William C. Codman for GM Co., Gorham. They catalog described them as being one of best examples of the 18th Century and it's ornamentation gives them a rich massive appearance seldom found in silver plate.

*Please carefully review the written description before purchasing. It has important information regarding these forks.

The dessert size forks measure just 6" in height.

A light gold wash is on both sides of the gently flared tines. Lighter in person then photos.

Mid relief shell and gentle scroll adorns the handle.

Back of forks are also decorated at the tips of handles and the base of the tines.

Hand stamped one letter at a time, they are not perfect.

Lettering is a semi-handwriting style font that is around 3/32'-1/8" in height.

Over 100 years old the forks show their previous use and age, the gold wash in worn off in places and there are some pings and scratches. Overall I think they are in nice "antique condition".

* Coloring of the forks may appear differently on your computer monitor.

Listing is for one (1) set =1 Mr. and 1 Mrs. fork in the typeface shown.
* A simple utility looking anti-tarnish felt pouch is included with this set.

Customization not available.

These are vintage, evidence of pitting due to previous wear or age and marks made during the hammering process are expected. Spacing and alignment of letters is not exact all which add to their whimsical and charming look. These are perfectly imperfect.
