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.
