This is a great selection of interesting forks. Perfect for a vintage kitchen or dining table. They are somewhat tarnished but would look good for some TLC. The set consists of (from top of first photograph):
1. 3 identical forks with marks indicating they were made by William Hutton & Sons, c. 1864- c. 1930 (these forks probably date to before 1900 as there are no crossed arrows - added when the firm was acquired by another business).
2. a fork with marks indicating it was made by William Kemp & Co., approx. 1899-1923.
3. a fork with marks indicating it was made by Daniel & Arter, late 19th century - 1930s.
4. a fork with marks indicating it was made by Deykin & Harrison, 1895-1930s, this has quite severe and uneven wear on the barbs telling a story of its use and is monogrammed with a gothic letter which seems to be a 'B'.
5. and 6. forks of two different sizes by the same unknown maker, marks are 'P&H' (in banner), an owl, and possibly a lamp, one measures 7 inches and the other 7 1/2 inches
7. a fork with marks indicating it was made by John Bednal & Co., 1850s - 1864 (Bednal did continue after this date, however without his partners), this fork has quite severe tarnishing and wear consistent with its age.
