One of the premier names in Philadelphia silver manufacturing in the second half of the 19th century, Peter L. Krider produced items that set a standard for design and quality.

This exceptionally large, 10 1/4" long, 3.1 T. oz., ice cream server validates the above statement.

The handle has a rounded end with a "Tipt" backside. The blade is triangular with an upswept, pointed, end, a rolled upper edge, and double, mirror finish, vees with rounded shoulders in the heel (see image 2).

The entire back of the piece is plain save for the marks, which are "P.L. Krider," his "lion, K, crown" emblem, and the word "Sterling."

Apart from the vees, the front of the piece shows a satin matte ground which is intricately and extensively bright cut with wriggle work and diamond detailing.

Philadelphia work of the circa 1870 period of this characteristically exhibits extremely fine engraving and this exemplifies the best of the best.

Never monogrammed, it is in immaculate condition, without wear or damage. The engraving in particular remains as sharp and well-defined as it was when this item was produced.
