An Elegant and very Rare Suite of 12 Vintage French Silver Escargots Forks, by ‘Maître Orfèvre’ Andre Morand.
The forks are done in the simple yet elegant Double Baguette style, which loosely translates to Double lines.
The work is refined and the set very elegant, adaptable to any table.
They are perfect to hold and handle with a really great shape.
Each fork has both the Minerva 1 Silver title as well as the Makers Mark.
They are in excellent condition and come in their presentation box.
Sets of Silver Escargot Forks were rare as they came more readily in Plated Silver.
The height given is that of one fork.
The Hallmark is Minerva 1-1st title – 1838 -1919 – Paris
The Makers Mark is for ‘Maitre Orfèvre’ André MORAND. It shows his two initials separated by a Cup.
The Mark was registered in 1907.
