This fork and spoon are cut in Dorflinger’s 1-1 Sultana pattern. Both are stamped Dorflinger. Most cut glass forks and spoons are in generic, plain patterns, but this is obviously a rarity because of the quality and seldom seen pattern.
The Sultana pattern is made up of alternating stars – eight pointed ones with clear button centers and flat ones with a fanned center. Each of these stars is framed by notched prism. The middle layer of the pattern is made up of concave windows. These give a full view to the air trap center of the handle. What’s particularly amazing about this set is they managed to continue the pattern entirely across the end of the handle – with the singular flower-type fan formation usually featured in the center of the pattern. Quite a bit of engineering and design went into fitting the pattern onto this seldom-seen form.
The handles are in good condition with some minor roughness from being rolled on a table – but not large chips or anything particularly noticeable. Each measures approximately 11 3/4″ long and 1 3/4″ tall. It’s readily apparent that Dorflinger spared no amount of effort in crafting this wonderful set.
