Offered is a lovely and scarce American coin silver serving piece bearing the maker's mark of George C. Shreve, working in San Francisco from about 1852 on. This piece appears to be a buckwheat or tomato server, but I am happy to be corrected if this piece had a different purpose. This server measures about 8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. It is decorated with a period Gothic initial "C" and clearly marked. The engraving on this piece is excellent and highly decorative. Condition is very good overall, with minimal surface wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a lovely San Francisco coin silver server!
