Fantastic condition this vintage Stieff sterling silver Cocktail fork with iconic 'Stieff Rose' pattern is the perfect addition to your collection. Also a great piece to add to your current set or keep as a spare. The fork is in excellent condition and only lightly used. The sterling silver fork is bright and shiny and is not monogrammed. The pattern 'Stieff Rose' was named as such to prevent confusion with other rose patterns. The Repoussé pattern by Kirk and Son is also very similar and eventually in 1979 the two companies Kirk and Son and The Stieff Company merged and became Kirk Stieff Company. This fork is stamped 'Sterling - Stieff ' to the rear of the Handle with the time period of this manufacture being circa 1950's. This fork is very ornate and feels nice in the hand, with a good balanced weight.
