Reference: S1855
Period: George III
Year: 1814-1820
Silversmith: Johannes Combrink
Place: Cape
Price: $ 300.00
Weight: 118 grams
Dimensions: 21.2 cm
Condition: One fork very good, one fork fair. Old repair to 2 tines on one fork. Wear to back of tines from use.

Description: A pair of Cape silver table forks, quite Colonial in character, with excellent Cape silver hallmarks. The forks are similar to Old English pattern with 4 tines, but have a wide flattened end and semi rounded stem, more continental in character than English. The forks have original engraved initials JR, this too is Colonial in style with bright cut flecks around the initials. The hallmarks on both forks are clear, crude anchor, makers mark IC, anchor, mark 22 in Cape Silver by Welz. One fork has 2 very old (and quite crude)repairs to both external tines, it looks like they were re-attached, now very secure. Despite the repair to one fork, we really like this pair, loads of character. We have dated these forks to early in Combrink's career, prior to the arrival of the English silversmiths in 1820.
