$165.00

The pattern on this 9" long, weighty at 2.8 T. oz., pie server is a "Leaf & Scroll" design that is indigenous to Philadelphia.

It is illustrated in a "handle patterns" unit of Catherine Hollan's Philadelphia Silversmiths, where it is attributed to Robert and William Wilson, a partnership that dates from the second quarter of the 19th century, and their "R.&W. Wilson" mark does appear on the backside of this coin silver piece.

The handle is flat and double die struck, meaning the pattern appears on both sides.

There is a feathered script "AME" monogram engraved on the front.

The blade is also flat and triangular in shape. The wide shoulder area has scalloped margins.

This is in excellent condition, free of polishing wear and having a soft patina showing only light surface scratches. The blade is without bends, cracks, or ripples.
