A name of note among 19th century Philadelphia silver manufacturers, William Faber, later joined by his sons, produced items of high quality and lasting appeal.

This substantial sized gravy ladle, 7 1/2" long, 2.0 T. oz., with a 2 5/8" wide, 1" deep, oval bowl is a case in point.

It is distinguished by its extensive bright cut engraving that appears on a rounded end "Antique" handle, and additionally in the bowl with double vee shaped grooves and scalloped shoulders.

Portraying a floral motif on the handle and a more stylized design in the bowl, this work is Aesthetic in nature and suggests a circa 1880 date.

Never monogrammed, this is in flawless estate condition. It is absent dents, bends, or other evidence of wear. The engraving remains crisp and well-defined and the finish is bright and even.

Marks are "W. Faber & Sons" and "Sterling."
