Item Details
Description
A set of four Scottish provincial table forks, in Fiddle pattern with script initials to front and reverse of each terminal, maker's marks for George Booth, Aberdeen, length measuring 8 inches (20.2 cm). Together with a similar dessert fork with marks for Aberdeen and over struck with further hallmarks for Samuel Hayne & Dudley Cater, London 1845. Combined weight 11.47 ozt (356.8 grams).
Condition
All the forks display general wear including surface scratches, contact marks and tarnishing commensurate with the age and use. Numerous heavier scratches and nicks. Heavier wear to the fork tines, especially the tips which are now a little uneven and quite tarnished. The marks on the four spoons are mainly clear and legible with heavier wear and rubbing to one of them. The Scottish marks on the dessert spoon are now very rubbed and partly indistinct, however the English hallmarks are clearly legible.
