Large at 7 7/8" long and weighty at 1.4 T. oz., this master butter knife is solid sterling silver.

The pattern is Gorham's "Fleury," which is a floral design very reminiscent of that company's "Buttercup," although the flowers in this instance appear to be wild rose, and in that regard, there is a close parallel with Watson's "Meadow Rose."
