I Need Your Expertise, Please
I was taking down a bed today to clear out a room (as part of our renovations) and amongst the boxes under the bed (I'm not the only one that stores boxes under the bed, am I?), I found a box of old silver I had collected over the years.
Most of it is silver plate but I found one old three tine fork with a bone / celluloid / ivory / bakelite (???) handle. I can not find any markings on it like what is on the silver plate pieces.
I can see a faint wood grain type of design in the handle. Can anyone tell me what it is made of and about how old it is? Thanks!
