Tiffany Lap Over Edge Melon Forks Silver Plated Blades Sterling Handles
Eleven matching Tiffany & Company antique melon forks/knives with silver plated blades and acid etched sterling handles. A rare set of eleven as mentioned in the book Tiffany by William Hood "Tiffany Silver Flatware". These are the same 11 from a private collection, the ones used in the book to show the example of the melon fork. ( page 78)
One of the silver plated blades has a small spot of the steel showing, the rest are all close to perfect. Believe it or not there is a monogram WBS worked into all those loops on the handles as shown in the book.
