I have what I think is a Sardine Fork (correct me if I'm wrong). It's 5.5" long. I've searched in books, online, everywhere and can't find this mark or pattern. The pattern looks like Chrysanthemums, hope the mark picture is clear enough to ID. Any help would be appreciated.

Your pattern is ADOLPHUS, by Mt. Vernon Silversmiths. The trademark is theirs, but is not recorded in any of the standard references. If you do a search on the Forums, you will find a thread about another Mt. Vernon pattern, YETIVE.

I hope this helps!
