Kitchen Utensils, 3 bone and 1 wooden handled three tine forksAbout this object
This collection of old three tined forks was donated to the museum by Mrs Gough in 1975. Due to them being three rather than four tine and mainly having bone handles it is believed they were manufactured in the 19th century.
This type of fork was designed to be used in the kitchen for turning items of cooking and for testing how well cooked they were, it was not an item usually used at the dining table and was made to last with many kitchens still using them today.
