    These forks have engraved on them Pat.May22. 1900
    They also have 3 small stamps, on the left a dragon like design, and then a R, and then a lion like design. They are 7" long. I polished on of them and it looks beautiful. I still don't know what I am going to do with them.

    Mystery Solved

      Could you give us a photo of the three marks, dragon, lion etc? Could be English silver. The image is too small to see. Nice forks!

      The hallmarks are from Reed and Barto, Taunton, MA. They are a griffin, an "R" and a lion rampant. Sorry, I can't tell you the pattern, but if I find it anywhere, I'll let you know. You can see the hallmarks here:

      DOH, that should read "Reed and Barton".

      Found it! It's the Les Cinq Fleurs pattern.

      Thank you vetraio! And it only took me 3 posts to get it all on here. That might be some kind of record. *LOL* :-)

      Thank you everyone for your help in finding out for me the manufacturer of the forks.
