This style of combination utensil often turns up in soldier groupings. It was one of the more popular knife, fork and spoon combinations of the period.

Richards patent is dated July 23, 1861 and is usually marked on the knife section. The only visible mark on the piece offered here is “PATENT APPLIED FOR.” It is possible this particular specimen was made before the patent was confirmed.

The item is made up of a knife with a crimped handle. The other piece has a spoon on one end and a fork on the opposite with a crimped section between the two. When not in use the fork slides into the crimped knife handle while the knife slides into the crimped area on the spoon and fork section.

Item has moderate to heavy surface rust and pitting. Especially on the bottom of the spoon section. [AD]
