Having rounded, double scroll shoulders, with a triple leaf drop and a different single leaf also flanked by scrolls set mid handle, "Pacific" issued in 1870 by San Francisco's Schulz & Fisher was very much a period design. It is highly reminiscent, for example, of Knowles & Ladd "Crete" and Gorham's "Pompeii," both contemporaneous with "Pacific."

This example is an 8 7/8" long, 1.9 T. oz., pie server marked "coin" for the silver content.

It has a generously proportioned, 4 1/2" by 2 7/8" at the widest, pointed tip blade with cupped shoulders, the surface and flange edges of which are extensively engraved in a leaf, flower, grasses, and cross hatch design with wriggle work detailing.

It is inscribed with a feathered letter "MEM" monogram set sideways on the handle.

In superb estate condition, this retains clear pattern detail and crisp engraving. The blade is free of bends or breaks, and the overall finish is bright and even.
