9 Matching Frank Smith

Issued in 1901 at the beginning of the Edwardian Period in English history, Frank Smith's "Federal Cotillion" is also known as "Edward VII." It is a relatively high style "Kings" pattern that with only minor differences is identical to Whiting's "King Edward," also introduced in 1901, suggesting that American silver manufacturers were pivoting off the end of the Victorian era in their design offerings.

The scale of pieces in this pattern is large, as evidenced by the fact that this 8 3/4" long, very heavy at 4.7 T. oz., piece is identified as a preserve spoon, when it is actually the size of a typical berry... Click for details
