Description: CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH (1868-1928) FOR MISS CRANSTON'S, GLASGOW
ASSEMBLED SET OF TWELVE FORKS, CIRCA 1905
electroplated metal and stained bone, each with four prongs and faceted handles, impressed marks MISS CRANSTON'S (12)
20.5cm (8in) long

Condition Report: All the forks are in good condition
Minor shade variations to the handles but a fairly even spread, perhaps with the exception of one fork which whose handle is significantly paler
Some minor marks, scratches etc on the handles and metal commensurate with their age and use in a tearoom
All Miss Cranston's marks very clear
Minor differences to the 'set' of each fork head and prongs, in keeping with the fact that this is an assembled set, possibly from varying batches of forks ordered for the tea rooms.
