I just bought, for myself, a teaspoon, marked by Unger, and also marked "COPYRIGHT 1904" in the "He Loves Me" pattern (a girl plucking a daisy). The Newark Museum has a mirror and brush in this pattern, but I'd never seen flatware before. Any Unger buffs that can tell me more about this as a flatware design?

The "He Love's Me" pattern shows up in the 1904 catalogue as a "Spoon and Fork" pattern, which I have always assumed meant they only made the flatware in spoons and forks. Has anyone else seen anything besides spoons in forks in any of Unger's "Spoon and Fork" patterns?

Gee, Ben, I guess I didn't look through the reprint of the 1904 catalogue as thoroughly as I thought I had. I'd better get it out of the library again...

Hi Ulysses - we have not only a teaspoon and lunch fork, but also a berry fork in the He Loves Me pattern. The little berry fork is only 3.75 inches long.

CORRECTION:
My reference to a 'little berry fork' in the previous entry was incorrect. I have just referred to the wonderful reprint of the 1904 Unger Brothers Catalogue (thank you, Eden Sterling!) and found it on page 188, where the pieces in the Douvaine pattern are identified. It is an Oyster Cocktail Fork.
