Exotic George Shiebler Sterling Silver Wine Taster
Silver : Coin Silver : Flatware

Old Friends  
2753f   This item is currently being auctioned

An 1880s pattern characterized by irregular forms, hammered surfaces, and classical, as well as sometimes Aesthetic, imagery, "Homeric" aka "Etruscan" is strongly associated with George Shiebler.
