Cape Silver Tablefork and Dessertfork - Johannes Combrink
Reference: S1539
Period: George III
Year: Circa 1820
Silversmith: Johannes Combrink
Place: Cape
Price: $ 200.00
Weight: 108 grams
Dimensions: tablefork 20.2 cm, dessert 18.0cm
Condition: Excellent, slight kink to one tine of dessertfork, light scratches on back of forks from use.

Description: A matching set consisting of a Cape Silver tablefork and dessertfork, in the Old English pattern, with matching contemporary initials DJ, probably the original owner. The initials are engraved on the back of the forks, in Georgian style. Both forks are good quality, with long tines, and are a good weight. The hallmarks on both are excellent, very well struck and clear, consisting of makers mark IC between the shell and ladder devices used by Combrink. It is interesting to note that the devices are not struck in the same order, so their placement by the silversmith was probably random. This is a combination of marks 26 - 28 in Cape Silver by Welz. Combrink was a member of the well regarded Combrink family of Cape silversmiths.
