length 8 5/8 inches, weight 3.9 Troy ounces, monogrammed "B", outstanding original condition, marked "Shreve Crump & Low" with 925 in oval.

Though not a "first demand" pattern, the Antique Ivies were made by several manufacturers, and involved extensive skill and hand work to produce. Expensive when first sold, they are members of a dying breed, as most flatware of this quality has now been consigned to the melting pot. This handsome pair was given as a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary gift in in 1879, and you dear reader may re-purpose it again in 2016...
