Purchased in the fall and haven’t found it in my brief searches yet. Photo quality is low, these are from an auction listing I won, I haven’t taken my own yet. I checked some of the obvious places without success but folks here have a knack for pulling something up on demand that I can’t find. Great looking forks IMO! I’m thinking of putting them into use unless it turns out they have some real value. They came out of a very, very strong collection so it’s possible they do. If not I paid a great price and will be happy anyway. 5.75” or so long.

    Ah! You devil you! I spent a long time going over that page. Obviously not paying enough attention. I was looking only at the actual photos of marks and not at the representations of them on the left. The actual photo of this mark is too poor to notice (for me) it when scrolling through pages and pages. Great eye and thanks!

    I knew the mark, but Bahner had several variants of their lion-head mark, was looking for one like yours...

    Much appreciated! My pattern is much fancier than most I see listed. A few go for some good cashola. I’ll probably hang onto them but good to know that they may be appreciated if I want to move them.
