An old two-tine fork collection

Old carving forks

Thirteen steel two-tined forks probably dating from the 17th and 18th centuries and of various designs.

A recent extremely unusual and exciting acquisition was a group of large forks all of which belonged to Bill Brown, whose remarkable and world famous collection was used to illustrate a book that is a must for all cutlery collectors.

Most of them have horn handles and not surprisingly, all show various degrees of wear and tear.  It is not my intention to keep them all so I will be advertising a few of them on eBay and via email enquiries.
