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
