The fork has two tines on a baluster stem - a very early design as well. The metal parts are made of steel and the ferrule and decorative end cap made of silver.The metal parts are original to the piece which is not often the case. The set is in great condition with some minor oxidation to the metal parts which is normal but it is better looking than most.
