$36.00

Issued in 1897, just before the turn of the 20th century brought forward a burst of innovative Art Nouveau patterns, Alvin's "Wellington" incorporates traditional design elements such as a shell, egg and dart motif, and scrolls, all offered in an English manner as befits the pattern name.

The backside of the handle on this 4 5/8" long, .6 T. oz., (baby) food pusher has a more simplified design than the front and coincidentally resembles Gorham's "Norfolk" of the same period.

It is a fully original item, i.e. factory produced rather than made up or customized from another piece.

The blade, which is the characteristic element of a food pusher and set at a cant to the handle, measures 1 1/2" by 5/8" and has scalloped shoulders and edges.

Never monogrammed, this is in excellent estate condition. Polishing wear is nil and the finish is smooth and even. The blade is without bends or breaks, but does show light surface scratches and faint nicking.

Marks are the Alvin emblem, "Sterling," and "Patent," all in fine, precise lettering.
