How old is this fork??

Postby Edwin » Sun May 05, 2019 8:55 pm

I’ve looked for a few years to find out how old and who makes this fork. Please help if you can. May just be trash but I like it. The tines look like they are from early styles to me. Also the only Maker mark that I can find is a tree. I’ve searched and can not find it anywhere. Thank you

Helo, this is the mark of Heinrich Boeker and Co. from Solingen, Germany, founded in 1867, if I remeber exactly. I would date this to around 1900, give or take two decades. Is the handle hollow or solid ? Regards, Bahner
