$575.00 Price for the pair.

A matched pair, this spoon and fork could readily be used as a salad serving set, or individually as buffet or platter pieces.

Made by George Shiebler, with a likely late 19th century date, they are imaginatively designed--which in reference to Shiebler is often an understatement--and extravagantly scaled. Both items are stamped with a "winged S" emblem, "Sterling," and model number "2733."

Each piece measures 10 1/2" long, with the fork weighing 3.2 T. oz. and the spoon nearly 3.4 T. oz.

The handles show a "Heraldic" motif, featuring a knight's helmet and shield with abundant feathery plumage, suggesting a potential reference to the Prince of Wales.

The serving ends are elongated and robust, the spoon 4 1/2" and the fork 4 1/4", and finished with satin matte gold wash surfaces.

They are in pristine original condition, with rich finishes. The only signs of use are slight fading of the gold on the backside heels of the fork and spoon where they rest. Otherwise they remain as they were made.
