While the actual pattern name "Wave Edge" applies to a line of silver produced by Tiffany & Co., the border on this 6" by 3 1/8", 1.7 T. oz., dresser, pin, or other tray can appropriately be described using the same descriptor.

It has a 1/2" high sidewall with a scalloped edge and a series of raised scrolls that appear to mimic breaking waves.

The center bottom of the piece has an oval dome that is engraved "HCE" in lined script. Ridges radiate out from this, suggesting a sunburst.

In sum, the design elements reflect Aesthetic mode sensibilities.

The underside is imprinted with Gorham's "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," model number "255," and a date symbol for "1889."

The piece is in excellent condition. It is free of dents, bends, tears, or notable scratches. The bottom remains flat and the finish is bright and even.
