Trashball 091107: A Fork in the Load

One of my favorite finds, these tiny forks (3 inches long) were made circa 1850 by Baltimorean Andrew Ellicott Warner and is near sterling purity. One has a wonderful little engraving of an elk on it; the other three have a lion holding a star. Recovered in Washington, DC.
