I have just acquired this rather strange for. It is silver plated, by Henry Fielding of Birmingham. It is table fork size The head has short sharp tines and is quite deeply dished. It also has an odd oval hole before the wings on the shaft. The close up picture shows evidence of knife cut marks.
I could speculate forever what it may be for, but if anyone would care to give an opinion or even better a definite identification it would be very much appreciated.
