Besides having a market value, vintage sterling offers superior quality, thoughtful craftsmanship, and unique designs. Sterling will develop a lustrous finish, when used daily, and is also dishwasher safe.
This sterling cake server has a tapered handle with an obtuse bell-shaped tip. The decorative treatment is clearly Neoclassical with a garden urn centered on what could be a column. It was engraved on one side with the letter, “M,” in Old English script. The spade-shaped blade has rounded shoulders and tip.
There are a few minute surface scratches on the blade.
Sterling is marked on the side of the handle next to a partially visible hallmark. This pattern dates to 1913.
