Perfect. I have so much stuff. I had a china cabinet in which I displayed all kinds of silver items. Forks, spoons and the like.
Even tiny salt spoons. Going through them is a task.

I have had the same fortunate problem.

I am working on your next question following the order of submission.

Thank you for the excellent photos, Yes, the one of the marks is blurred but the last picture showed them clearly once I zoomed in.

This is a sterling sardine serving fork with the American firm of Jennings Silver Co mark. Jennings dated 1915-1943 when they were bought by the (American )International Silver Co.

The pattern used here is the Old English pattern first introduced by Jennings in 1917. I believe the symbol that is illegible is probably IS for the International Silver Co. That would mean that IS revived the pattern after 1943.

Sterling sardine forks like this sell retail for $115-130.

I hope this helps, again.
