STUNNING EXTREMELY RARE FINE QUALITY GEORGIAN CARVED CLENCHING HAND FORK. This is a stunning Extremely Rare Fine Quality Georgian Carved Clenching Hand long stem Fork, this would date to circa 1800 making it at nearly 220 years old, the detailing is stunning, the 4 prong's also known as Tines have been crafted and carved beautifully with a spade like detailing to the shoulders, the long stem is also carved superbly which has the crease of the inside of an elbow this then runs up the the most stunning finely craved hand which is in the form of a clenching hand, the detailing is breath taking, you can see each nail has been carved beautifully, the carved knuckles on the hand to the folds in the skin, it is so very life like. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, i have never seen anything like this on the market before its breath taking and extremely rare, this i believe would have once belonged to a wealthy Gentleman or lady in the Georgian period, if this could talk i bet it would have some fascinating stories to tell, this is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel.
