Catherine Hollan in "Philadelphia Silversmiths" lists William Faber as working by 1828 and joined by sons Charles and William as "Faber & Sons" in 1866, which name and firm lasted until 1887.

Producers of fine silver, much of which demonstrated artful bright cut work, the company also produced this die struck pattern that bears strong similarity to one, also unnamed, produced by George Sharp in the same 1860s period.

This example is a 7 1/8" long, approximately 1.1 T. oz., master butter knife.

It is a high quality example, without a monogram or removal. Pattern details remains very well defined and the finish has a rich patina. The blade is free of dents, bends, or nicks, noting by exception one small uneven area near the tip.

It is stamped "Coin" on the reverse.
