A very nice and heavy set of 8 silver Old English Pattern dinner forks. The reverse of the handles bear the family crest of the Cowan family of a scallop shell under the motto "sic itur in altum" (this is the way to heaven).
All hallmarked for Edinburgh 1891-92, makers Hamilton & Inches.
They measure 20cm (7 7/8") long and 2.2cm (7/8") wide. Combined weight of 570g/18.3ozt.
Condition is very good with no damage or repairs and just minor surface wear from age and use; the hallmarks are lovely and clear.
