Sterling Flower Patter Fork Marked A Sterling

I was curious if anyone could help me identify this piece. I am guessing the A may be the 1936 mark and I can’t make anything else out besides the sterling patent part. It’s a nice pattern with patterns on both sides and no engraving. I bought it for $35 in a lot at auction with another half to 3/4 of an ounce of nothing special.

The “A” is not a date mark - it’s the manufacturer’s trade mark (Alvin of Providence RI).


Thanks, any idea what the pattern is?
