This was shown on one of Martha Stewart's shows some years ago. That would be a hint that it has something to do with food, but then again being a fork would also do that.

It might be good for eating something underneath a tree, me honey and me watching for the moon, me honey and me making boolooloop soon wink Or maybe it is just a fork for people who have constantly itchy tonsils biggrin

This similar piece is a Dutch cake fork (taartvork), used to serve cake and sometimes found in sets with individual cake/pastry forks, though someone wrote a book claiming that they are mango forks and that the Dutch simply have no idea what they've been producing and using - so of course now, it's been widely spread as fact since it's on the internet.

They are usually ornate, often cast, produced in both silver and silverplate, varying in decoration, size and quality - the outside tines are splayed outward and the center tips are often not particularly sharp, qualities that wouldn't really be conducive to pushing straight into the relatively firm pit of mango, doubt that some are even sturdy enough to support the weight of a large fruit...
