Whiting 'Lily of the Valley' Pattern Antique Sterling Luncheon Forks - 6, New York City, early 20th century
'Lily of the Valley' is a beautiful art nouveau pattern with a single stem of blossoming Lily of the Valley emerging from an opening leaf. The backs are engraved with script style initials 'EBS'.
The shaped handles with scrolling designs incorporating naturalistic elements create a stunning pattern.
Marked on the back with Whiting's trademark and 'STERLING', these wonderful forks measure just over 6.75 inches long, weigh a total 6.85 troy ounces and are in very good condition. There is slight wear on the back to the initials where the handle rests on a table.
