Hello Jill-

I believe this is the Warwick pattern by International Silver. International was formed in 1898 as a conglomeration of many silver companies, including Simpson Hall and Miller - whose mark is stamped on your piece (although this slightly varies from the mark I usually see.) The pattern date on this is also 1898, so it was first produced the same year as International was formed.

Lisa,
Thank you for your response. I compared my fork to pictures of the pattern that you identified and it is definitely the Warwick pattern by Internation Silver.
