40+ years of detecting, never had one of these. It's 13cm long and apparently it's a bread fork or a meat/game fork.

That’s really nice, what sort of time period do those come from?

Well that`s something different.
Any makers mark or anything.
Just seen a similar shaped, meat fork, ornate like yours, Silver plated on an auction site from 1890`s.
Great find, :thumbsup:
