Alvin's 1899 "Edward VII is nearly without parallel in the realm of silver patterns.

The only similarly themed line is Whiting's "Heraldic," while a weak third is Baker-Manchester's "Spartan."

All three feature a knight's helmet at the handle end, which in Alvin's instance is also embellished with scrolling acanthus leaves.

This is the most robust of the three iterations, as is evidenced by this 7" long, very heavy at 3.3 T. oz., gravy ladle with a 2 1/2" by 2 1/8" by 3/4" deep bowl.

The surface is highly textured, exhibiting a sculptural quality, with the scrolling features of the design extending onto the bowl shoulders and interior base.

There is a flowing, leaf script, "CLS" monogram engraved on the handle front.

In excellent condition, this shows no evident polishing wear, has a rich finish, and the bowl is free of dents or bends, although there are light surface scratches on the interior.

Marks are Alvin's "A flanked by two symbols" and "Sterling."

Please reference Old Friends item 2718f for a large cold meat fork in this pattern.
