My wife looks for strawberry forks and found these. They are marked Sterling 925, but do not have a makers mark. Does anyone recognize this pattern.
These a nice as they are decorated on the front and the back.

I do not recognize the specific pattern, however, this style of berry fork with two tines and notches at the base of the handle was used by Stieff. The decoration on the back is not typical of their berry forks that I have seen. Moreover, their repousse designs are very hard to tell apart.

Thanks Park. I think these came from Baltimore as the Stieff and Kirk ones do. Just a different maker who wanted something a little different from Stieff and Kirk.
