For sale is a highly unusual, modernist design, two pronged toasting fork, assessed to be from the late 1920s/1930s due to the craftsmanship, materials, wear and design.

- Simple but beautiful design and quality construction of high quality brass in square section leading to a curved head two-prong toasting fork.
- The handle is modernist / geometric in nature and is very reminiscent of European art deco jewelry from makers such as the highly distinctive Jakob Bengel, in particular as the centre of the handle is decorated with a circular red bakelite cabochon retained by crafted white metal. The red button of bakelite is framed by a geometric and linear design made of a set of brass sections forming an angular frame for the handle.
- The whole toasting fork as a result balances beautifully with this in your hand and your thumb on the cabochon.
- Highly unusual from an era of rapid modernisation that a toasting fork is decorated in this manner, when manual processes and design were being rapidly evolved.
