A Sizeable Sterling Silver Fish Knife and Fork by Bigelow Brothers and Kennard, Boston Silversmith and Retailer. This mark was used from 1845-1863, but the firm existed in ome form or another from 1830-1922. The pieces are marked 925, rather than sterling, as this time was the transition between the usage of coin and sterling, without the term sterling being initially used. The pieces are bright cut and engraved, with the knife having a picture or a fish (see photo). Dimensions; knife 12.5:m for 9.5"; total weight 8.2 Troy ounces. Excellent condition.
