Patented in 1892, as indicated on the backside of this 6 1/8" long, not quite .5 T. oz., butter pick, Wallace's "Waverly" features a leafy scroll margin. It shares a close design sensibility with Whiting's "Louis XV," which dates from 1891, as well as Gorham's "Strasbourg," from the same period.
This is a fully original item, factory produced and not made up or adapted from another piece. It has a narrow, straight, handle, and a tapered, twisted tip.
The condition is mint estate, and there is no monogram or removal. It is free of polishing wear and possesses a fine, naturally brilliant, finish.
In addition to the patent date, the backside is marked with the Wallace deer head emblem, and the word "Sterling."
