Introduced in 1889, Towle's "Shell" is a stylized representation of a scallop shell set on a rounded end, upturned, "Antique" handle.

This piece is a 7 1/4" long, just over 1.1 T. oz., solid silver master butter knife.

It has a broad, 1" wide, flat, blade with an upswept, pointed tip, and notched edges.

There is a line script "MLJ" or "MLT" monogram engraved sideways on the handle.

In very fine condition, this is without any evident wear and has a bright, even, finish.

Marks are Towle's "standing lion in a T" emblem, "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, "C.J. Welty," Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
