Today I am selling a pair (2) of original and rare old sterling silverfruit knives in the "IMPERIAL CHRYSANTHEMUM" pattern (introduced in 1894) by the Gorham Mfg Co. of Providence, RI.. This is an impressive, heavily embossed, floral pattern The Gorham marks (and sterling) are on the back pf the handle.

These fruit knives are the real thing... not made from another piece They are each 5 11/16" long, and are in very good condition showing only slight wear from 110+ years of light polishing and occasional use. T are no problems. T were some small nicks in the blades, but I had them buffed out. That is why the blades are shiny. T have been no other repairs.. T is a script single letter monogram 'S' on the front of each piece. Never monogrammed on the back..

The marks stamped on the back of the handles are the Gorham hallmarks of, "LION, ANCHOR, & "G", "STERLING", and "PAT. 94".

The photos tell it all.
