I have managed to acquire three different sterling patterns for which I can find no real names despite searching the internet intently, including Library of Congress, some museums, and this forum. This is the third one.

The replacer people seem to have assigned these patterns placeholder designations using the manufacturer's initials and a numerical sequence (listed just for reference), but I'm pretty sure those weren't the original names.

Any pattern IDs or even guidance on where to look would be greatly appreciated. The listed date ranges are guesstimates, and accurate years would be most welcome.

Full disclosure: I am *thinking* about selling this fork unless it has some particularly interesting history, as it was just a random item in an auction lot, but I can't find out about its history until I know what it is.

R. Blackinton & Co. "BLS7"? 1915-1967, Fork-Cold Meat, 7 1/2"

Thank you in advance!
