It incorporates a central shield-like reserve on the upper front side and a corresponding open area on the backside. These areas are surrounded by tracery that is interspersed with numerous fleurs-de-lis, which are representative of the city which presumably inspired the pattern.

This example is a 6 1/8" long, just over 1.0 T. oz., sugar spoon. It has a... Click for details

Alvin

A "noble" pattern both in theme and presentation, and not so readily found, Alvin's 1899 "Edward VII is nearly without peer in the realm of silver patterns. The design is singular. The only near match is Whiting's "Heraldic," while a weak equivalent is Baker-Manchester's "Spartan."

All three feature a knight's helmet at the handle end, which is also embellished with scrolling acanthus leaves. Alvin's is the most robust of the three iterations, as is evidenced by the scale of this serving... Click for details
