There are some condition issues. One (on left in photo) has some dents in the side panels; the bobeche on the other is a bit wavy. Also, though they bear the same model number, one is decorated with beading and the other with "rope."
Keep in mind that when your table is lit with candle light, the guests will simply say "what lovely pair of candlesticks!"
This lovely example is entirely hand wrought, and dates from 1948. There have been a few dents removed from a...
One could spend a substantial number of hours searching through design patents looking for the original name of this pattern, and come up empty handed. Then again, one might find an exact date, and "design for the handle of a spoon." Either way, we find this early die struck p...
For those of you who wonder what that unusual symbol between the Whiting trademark and "sterling" might mean, we suspect that is a letter h inside a circle, meaning 'heavy,' since these weigh a bit more than the average Lily butter spreader.
And for those of you who favor comparison shopping, these can also be had on the big bad auction site at prices ranging from 40...

You'd be hard pressed to find better examples than these.
To give these some historical perspective, consider that the high relief, elaborately detailed patterns such as New Art and Chrysanthemum didn't spring into existence out of nowhere. Early (1850-60's) die-struck designs such as this were the middle step between simple, swaged decoration and th...

These have exceptional detail and die depth. Note early "PAT APP. FOR" mark.
Perhaps you know an Ellen who loves pie, though on second thought who doesn't love pie, so let's leave out the perhaps.
In spite of our best efforts, the rich plum purple color of this item does not show well, but it is stunning.
No one seems to be certain of how Connecticut gained this nickname, though legend has it that many peddlers frequented the area, selling nutmegs both real and fake.
This spoon is not commonly found.
You could buy one on the big bad auction site for 120 moneys, or you could buy ours for 90. Which makes more sense?
