Year: Circa 1850
Silversmith: Fredrik Waldek
Place: Cape
Price: $ 1 350.00

Condition: Fair to good, these forks have been used. Some wear to tines, and initials worn. Some tines are wonky and there are some scratches present. 1 fork has a small split on a tine at the base, but is still fit for use.

Description: Rare matching set of Cape Tableforks, in the Fiddle pattern, of good weight, and robust enough to be used. All 12 forks have very clear Pseudo English hallmarks and makers mark. The forks all have 2 sets of initials, but these are worn. These forks match the 6 Dessert spoons (item S1194), having the same maker and initials. Waldek, who produced silver from 1830 - 1877, took over Lawrence Twentyman's shop on Heerengracht street when Twentyman left the Cape.
