Singular in both design and form, this 10 1/8" long, 2.5 T. oz., ice cream server was made by New York's John Wendt.

The pattern, "Moresque," dates from 1873 and represents the epitome of the broad band of Islamic and Renaissance Revival designs from that period that include Whiting's "Arabesque," Tiffany's "Persian," and Gorham's "Raphael" and "Byzantine," among others.

Curiously, "Moresque" has four variants, and possibly more permutations. The handle is sometimes upturned and... Click for details

This "Grecian" is one of several designs that go by this name. It features a ram's head and a satyr figure.

Gorham

Measuring 10 1/4" long and weighing a substantial 4.7 T. oz., this piece is most likely an oyster ladle rather than the larger yet full size soup.

In today's environment the distinction may be inconsequential. Indeed, some of the massive serving pieces of the 19th century may be overly large for contemporary tables, making this size more utilitarian.

The pattern is Gorham's late 19th century "Maryland." It is an elaborate design that incorporates acanthus leaves, rose blossoms and... Click for details
