What Kind Of Fork Is That?

Some of you have asked me,
"What kind of fork is that?" I didn't know until I looked it up. (I found it at Mama Hawthorne's.)
Why, it's a dessert fork. I had no idea there were so many different forks. I have been woefully lacking in my table setting skillz Rosie hangs head in shame.

I am lucky to find silverware thats matches !! Unless I dig out the "for good stuff"

Interesting. The more prosperous Victorians (perhaps in a bid to not so-subtly advertise their wealth) often had a special utensil for every concievalbe need.

I like to look at silverware at antique stores because some of these items are just not being made anymore.

Is that one of those funky combo forks, you know, like Taco Bell has the spork? This one looks like a combo fork & knife. So would that make it a knork, or a fife?

Kathy, it's a Rachaelism.
Is it a spork?
And I'm a Rachist.

Treasures from the sea appear to be the most fork specific: oysters, fish, seafood, lobster, squid. Where's my damn shrimp fork?
