Steel, 3-tined fork with scrimshawed ivory handle, dated 1754. 35.3 grams, 7-1/2" long. Are you Edward Duquesne? If so, then this 250-year-old utensil has your name on it--literally! Flanking the name are initials J.C. and the date, plus some scrollwork, all on a flat side of a rectangular-shank ivory handle, in perfect condition except for a split on the back (not loose), the tines of the metal fork itself still sharp.
