What would this kind of fork have been used for? It's not very big - 5 inches long and 1.5 inches across the tines.
I'm no expert, but it looks like a sardine fork to me. Any markings on it to help date it? Possibly in use in the latter 1800's to early 1900's.
Yep....sardine fork....looks Russian....what are the marks?
