    I have been offered these 3 forks from the Deutsche Hof hotel in Nuremberg. I have checked against other Hof items for sale on line and the wreaths look good as does the writing. Any thoughts please?

    Not an item I am honestly familiar with. But the engravings appear to have genuine age to them and match in overall patina to the rest of the item. So going by that, I would say they are OK?

    Hopefully ohters can offer more learned opinion.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Judging from the tine wear and the base metal showing through on the worn spots of the plating, these pieces are, I'd have to say, Period. The letterings and markings look to show the appropriate wear also and generally match the rest of the pieces conditions, so I can see no reason to doubt these forks. They are nice and collectable and in honest worn condition. I would not estimate their value at an exhorbinant amount, but certainly decent priced.

    Hello! Why not? If it was SS, you can be suspicious, but here not. Har to make the connection with AH.

    These items are fairly common, I see no issues with them. There was a chap on here a while back with a couple of creamers from the same establishment, he was trying to sell them for a ridiculous amount, you'd have thought they'd been used in the last supper or something.....

    Thanks guys. He is asking $75 for all 3 which, judging by the spoons from the same hotel I have seen for sale, seems pretty cheap to me.

    It should be said that there are many such establishments named "Der Deutsche Hof" in Germany...There's one in the small Hessian town I grew up in as well...
