An antique coin silver dinner fork measuring 7.75" in length and weighing almost 1.5 troy oz. A circular medallion with a left-facing classical Roman or Greek soldier adorns the front of the handle. The back of the fork is completely smooth and unmarked but this medallion silver pattern was marketed by JW Tucker of San Francisco, California (in business from 1852-1886 - see other pieces in this identical pattern online bearing the Tucker & Co mark). According to Rainwater there is no evidence that Tucker manufactured the silver flatware bearing his name - apparently this piece had never been stamped. This is solid .900 silver, not silverplate.
Condition: There are some tiny nicks and scratches (heaviest wear is on the lower portions of the tines) consistent with age and normal use in addition to some tarnish - overall Very Good for age - no monogram.
