Item: Dessert Fork Description: Old
English pattern Hallmark: London circa 1770 by William Fearn
(duty dodger) Dimensions: 163 mm length; 34g weight
Comments: A very rare duty dodger fork with
one clear maker's mark and three others purposefully squashed to deceive
as legitimate hallmarks. The tines are worn and the engraved ducal crest
to the reverse terminal is tired (reflected in the price).
