Applied Medallion Engine Turned Coin Pie Server
click for details
Dating from the 1860s, this pie server features two popular design features of the period. One is the applied classical head of the sort that gave this genre, "Medallion," its name. The second feature is the engine turned surface of the blade. This was a widely used decorative technique at the time, one because it was appealing, and likely two, because it showed off a specialized capacity of the manufacturers.

This measures 9" long and weighs 2.0 T. oz. The blade is 4 1/4 by 2 5/8" at... Click for details
