Silver and Flatware/sterling whiting lily


Hi - I am trying to determine which fork is the 3 tined pastry fork
and which is the pickle fork.  Is there also a pie fork?? Thank you

Hi, Renee.

I'm not expert on this so I'll just pass on info found on other sites. I cannot verify the accuracy of the information but maybe it will help you some.

This site advertises a pastry fork that is 7 1/4" long:

This site shows an old style pickle fork 6 1/4 inches long:

This site shows a pie fork 7 1/4 inches long:
It looks to me like the same fork is being called either "pie" or "pastry".

At least the length helps distinguish it from the pickle fork.

Again, I'm not saying any of this is accurate.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
