Hello Trev,

Thanks for the information!

I have a pair of sugar tongs from 1898 by this maker but here i can't see

Can someone tell me what this fork was made for?

Hi, Can someone tell me what this fork was made for? It belongs to a family member in Paris, France.But somehow with this set of Hallmarks, i don't think it's French.If someone could tell me the maker, that would be a bonus! Thank you, Alain http://thumb3.webshots.net/t/75/75/6/95/80/212769580010335...

Hi Rod,

I don't know the maker of this batton .
From the picture it looks like a very good quality item.
Don't give up hope, it's very likely another forum member will tell you who the maker of your batton is!
