Shiebler Pair Sterling Olive Forks Applied Bird and Fish Hammered 6 1/4"+ For Sale
Shiebler Pair Sterling Olive Forks Applied Bird and Fish Hammered 6 1/4"+:
This is a fabulous pair of olive or hors d'ouevre forks. They are done in the hammered Japonesque style that Shiebler did so well. One features an applied heron, and the other an applied fish. Most likely these were a fiftieth anniversary gift in 1886. Each measures a bit over 6 1/4" or 16 cm. They are in outstanding condition and the original gold wash remans on the tines. Most of the black surface is due to reflection. Please see our excellent silver by Shiebler, Gorham, Tiffany, Durgin, Unger Brothers, and other excellent makers. Also, we have some excellent English silver listed. Please contact us if you have any questions.
