Item: Sweetmeat Fork Description: Trefid with 'ears'
Hallmark: London circa 1690 by TN crowned Dimensions: 103 mm length
Comments: An excellent sweetmeat fork with an
usual form of trefid terminal. As yet we have been unable to ascribe the
maker (potentially a bargain if it can be successfully attributed!).
