Hallmark Indentity





I’ve had this fork for a while. Would love some help identifying the hallmarks and possible value.

Hi,

925/1000 silver, London 1864/5, maker: John Kilpatrick, registered 1862.
A single fork is probably not worth much.

Regards,

G.

Thank you, George, for the information I thought it may be silver, I make jewellery so I think I will use this one to create something wearable.

Re-purposing silver in this way is something I do have an issue with unless the piece is damaged beyond economic repair. That being said it is yours to do what you like with…

I completely agree with Phil. I would not do it myself.

JK - John Kilpatrick would be turning over in his grave if repurposed…J/K… joke :slight_smile:

Why?..

What is your issue with it???

Why?..You said it wasn’t probably not worth much.

A lot of people all over the world repurpose silverware, especially sterling silver flatware. Just curious to find out why there is an issue with it?
