Chickering shows a fish knife in a similar pattern with notes that Stone was heavily influenced by Dresser's "The Art of Decorative Design (pl. XXVI)", which we have reproduced here in enlargement number five.
We've checked the big bad auction site, and can't find anything similar there for under one hundred mighty dollars, so if you're a reseller, there's a good chance that you'll be able to make enough on this to buy a minor league sports team, or at the very least a small yacht.
You'd be hard pressed to find better examples than these.
In all probability, this item is not terribly old. Towle remanufactured many pieces of this pattern in the mid 1980's, in an attempt to recapture some of their former glory. So though it's entirely legit, we can't represent this as antique. However, as with Gorham's later (also 1980's) production of historic patterns, the utmost care has been taken and no apologies need be made for the quality of this server...
To give these some historical perspective, consider that the high relief, elaborately detailed patterns such as New Art and Chrysanthemum didn't spring into existence out of nowhere. Early (1850-60's) die-struck designs such as this were the middle step between simple, swaged decoration and th...
These come and go, but I don't think we've ever owned one where the chasing is so crisp and the original oxidation hasn't been at least partially removed by some overzealous owner.
Finally, for those of you who favor comparison shopping, see item 223105898219 on the big bad auction si...
These have exceptional detail and die depth. Note early "PAT APP. FOR" mark.
Perhaps you know an Ellen who loves pie, though on second thought who doesn't love pie, so let's leave out the perhaps.
In spite of our best efforts, the rich plum purple color of this item does not show well, but it is stunning.
No one seems to be certain of how Connecticut gained this nickname, though legend has it that many peddlers frequented the area, selling nutmegs both real and fake.
This spoon is not commonly found.
You could buy one on the big bad auction site for 120 moneys, or you could buy ours for 90. Which makes more sense?
The perfect gift for your royalty obsessed friend who also loves antique silver.

Frequent guests of our little web page know that it is extremely unusual for us to offer items with removed monograms, but this is subtle, and also a tantalizing price, we think.
This was probably a custom made item.
We've examined both doggies carefully with a high power loupe, and they appear to be 14k. No, we're not going to test them...
Not a common form, this five lobed bowl is deceptively simple but devilishly difficult to make. Each section would have been "set in pitch" and hammered, keeping the line straight but gently increasing in height as it approached the rim. Then five pieces of molding were applied over the edge and soldered tog...
