RARE EARLY PRIMITIVE CASE XX CARVING FORK, 16 3/4IN. LONG

We are offering for auction a CASE XX MEAT CARVING FORK. This is the first one of these I have every seen. The wood in the handle looks to be Hickory with brass rivets. The fork is 16 3/4 in. in length. It has a small 1/4 in. crack in the back of the handle running from the front to the first rivet. I would think this would be a must for the serious Case Knife collector or primitive antique kitchen.
