Customer Question
Hello. I have...

Hello. I have a set of 6 forks.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Each fork is engraved with this legend: Sterling Pat 1899 The Bell Jewelry Co. And the bag says : Daniel Low and Co Incorporated

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No. I can send you by email photos.

Are you there ?
Antique Expert: Robert S., Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 10 months ago

Thanks for the photos, I'm beginning to see what you have, now.

Could you very kindly add a photo of the whole of one of the forks, front and back, so I can see the design.

Many thanks,
Robert

How much ???
Antique Expert: Robert S., Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 10 months ago

If you are unable to attach a photo of the forks, that's okay, I can take a guess on the value for you, but I can give you a much more accurate value once I see them.
