B.F. Chewning folk art photos invite speculation

Jon Halsey writes:
Interesting that Mary's fork is the most diminutive of the utensils in both pics and seems to have helpful notches where the fingers would naturally rest. Leads one to speculate that maybe this was for a young child, perhaps a granddaughter or favored niece.

Beautiful craftsmanship and Mr. Davis is surely blessed to have them in the family's possession. --Jon
