Question
Fork Mark Antler with W
Fork Mark Antler with  

Pix of Fork
Pix of Fork  
The attached picture is the only mark or id on a sterling silver fork 8'1/2" long. I describe it as Antler with "W" between.
The fork weighs approximate 2.5 oz.  Color of pix is a bit yellow but actual fork is perfect silver color.

I have not been able to find the silversmith mark ID and then will need to ID the pattern.

Answer
Hi, Steve.

The mark resembles the older Wallace marks that were in use for a long time.  

I have been unable to identify the pattern. I tried both sterling and silver plate. You might want to take advantage of the pattern matching service offered at www.replacements.com. They have a large reference library.

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,

Jim


ADDITION TO ANSWER:

I still have not found the pattern but as you look, check out Williams Brothers as well.
