A 9 3/8" long, 2.1 T. oz., solid silver pie server, this piece is marked "Coin" along with a maker's or retailer's mark that is too faint to identify with certainty, although it is likely Boston in origin.

Dating circa 1865, the pattern is Olive, which appears on both sides of the handle. The front is engraved in an elegant, feathered script, "SLM" monogram set sideways in the reserve area.

The blade is triangular-shaped, 4 3/4" long and 2 3/4" at the widest, and has slightly raised edges bordering a flat surface.

The heel has a scalloped margin, while the top side is finely engraved in a blossom and leaf period design with wriggle work detailing.

In choice condition, this is free of polishing wear, bends or blemishes. It retains clear pattern detail while the engraving remains sharp and well-defined. The finish shows a warm patina.

Note: there is a faint, nearly imperceptible, 1/16" long, age stress crack in each of the clefts of the two upraised notches on the blade edges.
