"Ribbon" by John Wendt, New York City, is a Moorish cum Egyptian Revival pattern dating from 1870.

The handle is square-shouldered with a knob top and shows an overall repeating, fine, leaf-like pattern.

There is a raised oval disk near at the top, which in this instance is engraved with an Old English lettering "F.H." monogram.

The lower section of the handle incorporates a round amulet-like detail, which is the element that notably evokes Egyptian Revival design.

This particular piece is a rarely found macaroni server that measures 9 1/2" long and weighs 2.5 T. oz.

The deeply cupped and large, 4" by 3" bowl, has a pronged and pierced edge, which is the defining characteristic of the form. The front and back surfaces are finished in a satin matte gold, which is bright cut engraved on the interior in a style that mirrors the handle pattern.

The shoulders are scalloped while there is a raised ridge that runs down the center bottom off the scalloping.

In superb estate condition, this is without wear or damage and has a bright finish. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, burrs, or bent prongs.

Marks are "Sterling" and "Patent," which is a typical Wendt identifier.
