Dating from 1911, Wallace's "Washington" exhibits the straightforward clarity of design that characterizes its Colonial Revival period, resembling in its directness of line, such other stalwarts of the age as Durgin's "Fairfax" and Towle's "Mary Chilton."

This example is a scarce, all sterling silver, asparagus server.

Measuring 9 3/4" long overall, and weighing 3.6 T. oz., it has a hollow, not filled, handle, and quite unusual for its time, a solid silver, 4" by 3 5/8", blade. Most pieces of this sort would have had a silverplated or early stainless steel blade.

The server is flat, has a pierced surface, and a rolled edge back, resulting in a hooded form.

There is an Old English "R" monogram inscribed on the front.

It is in exceptionally fine estate condition. The handle is free of dents, splits, or other damage, and the blade is similarly absent bends, burrs, or breaks in the reticulation. The handle and blade fit snugly. The overall finish shows a mirror, hand polished only, brilliance.

Marks appear on the backside of the blade and are the Wallace "RW&S deer head" emblem and the word "Sterling."
