Retailed by Tiffany, this lengthy, 7 7/8", and weighty at 1.6 T. oz., solid silver master butter knife dates prior to 1868.

A "French Thread," aka "Fiddle Thread," design, it was made by New York City's Henry Hebbard, who with his contemporary and sometime partner John Polhamus, was one of Tiffany's major suppliers in the 1850s and 60s.

Hebbard's "star, H, anchor" pseudo hallmark appears on the reverse, along with "Tiffany & Co.," and "Sterling."

It is engraved "EAS" in a delicate script on the handle front.

A robust piece, it is in excellent condition. The finish is bright and warm. The scalloped upper edge, and beveled lower edge, blade remains flat and free of bends or surface marring.

Six matching table serving spoons also available.
