Introduced circa 1865, Whiting's "Lotus" closely resembles Gorham's pattern by the same name and from the same period, with both designs falling within the Egyptian Revival style.

It features five fronds with their stalks appearing to be joined and looped together to form a slender stem.

This example is a 7 3/8" long, .9 T. oz., flat handle, master butter knife, with a particularly attractive blade. It has a notched upper edge and is finely engraved in a floral and leaf motif that reinforces the Egyptian theme.

The backside of the piece is plain save for being marked "Sterling."

In excellent condition, the pattern remains well-defined and is free of polishing wear. The blade is flat, even, and without bends.
