These spectacular Reed and Barton sterling silver Cocktail Forks are from my mother’s wedding silver service from 1942. In the heavily embellished Francis I pattern, they measure 5 5/8 in length, and can certainly be used for many assorted serving purposes – serving olives, or other hors d’oeuvres. The set was used only for special occasions and so these forks are in very good condition, with no dents or major scratches, and just surface wear which could be buffed out. They have been cleaned and polished by hand, only. They each have the Reed and Barton series of stamps with the’sterling’ mark on the back, and NO MONOGRAM. I have three more of same, that are available, and one with the H monogram, shown – please inquire. Eed & Barton Francis I Design from 1907:This Renaissance-Baroque-inspired design remains one of the most popular Reed & Barton flatware styles. Introduced in the first decade of the 1900s, this design was named after King Francis the 1st of France. This set includes a detailed fruit and flowers design. If you like this item, please view my other listings. This flatware is made in the U. And is warranted by its production company for 100 years. Three American Presidents (Wilson, Truman, and Eisenhower) have owned the Francis 1st tableware pattern. It was designed by Ernest Meyer, a French silversmith. His goal was to create a pattern that eclipsed the splendid Renaissance-Baroque metalwork of Benvenuto Cellini, court artist and sculptor in the court of King Francis I who ascended the French throne in 1515. It took him three years to design. The pattern is unique, given that – unlike other flatware patterns – it has fifteen different fruit-and-flower clusters. Each handle bears one of these detailed designs. The item “4 Francis 1st Cocktail Forks By Reed & Barton Sterling Silver 5-5/8, No Mono” is in sale since Thursday, December 19, 2019.
