I just picked up a set of 12 of these forks, impulse buy based on the fact that I have never seen anything similar. I know the pattern, its Tiffany wave edge. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the input. But these forks (set of 12) look nothing like known fish, oyster, or sardine forks in this pattern. I thought of that early on based on the scale pattern between the tines and stem. There is a lot surface area between roots of the fork and the neck of the stem or handle. The opposite of a sardine fork, and not really something you see with a fish fork.

The spread fork tines, perhaps a type of cake or pie fork.
