Patented in 1891 by renowned designer Charles Osborne while employed by Whiting Manufacturing Company, "Ivory" may be the most impressive line of flatware offered by that company.

Always esteemed by collectors, its "fate" has become clouded by current regulations concerning the material.

This example, a 5 3/4" long, .8 T. oz., cream ladle is presented here largely to exhibit the pattern and show its merits.

Model number "2888," this has a deep, double spout, bowl, that along with all silver components has a bright gold finish.

The ferrule or collar at the end of the stem, as well as the fitting at the join with the bowl, are intricately formed in a delicate leaf and scroll design.

The handle end is carved in a swirled design and tinted in a brown hue that runs to a mellow ivory.

This is an especially fine example in original condition. It shows no wear or damage, and presents as it did when it was first made.

In addition to the model number, this is stamped with the Whiting "lion" logo and "Sterling."
