A really wonderful set of ten matching antique large sterling silver dinner size forks manufactured by Gorham in the opulent multi-motif Versailles pattern, c. 1888.

Please note that each of the forks is marked with a "H" in a circle, which was Gorham's designation for Heavy Weight flatware.  This was one of the companies' top of line, thickest and most substantial sterling stock and for many years was only offered via special order.
According to the estate this silver was originally purchased in the Edwardian era, apx. 1905-1915.

These large, full size dinner forks measure apx. 7  & 3/4  inches in length.

They are very heavy and extremely substantial.  Combined weight is a considerable 22.87 Troy ounces.

This is an original matching set, as each is identically monogrammed with small single letter on handle reverse.

They are in excellent, very fine estate condition with no dings or dents.  The fork tines are thick and straight, with no rounding to outer two as is often seen in antique silver. Handles have not been bent.  Pattern detail remains amazingly defined.  See close up image.

If you are looking for a very high quality, well cared for, matching group of large old production dinner size Versailles forks, these pieces are in exceptionally nice estate condition.   Additionally, they are so thick, heavy and substantial that they can be used and enjoyed for generations.  Truly heirloom sterling silver.
