Handle to Shiebler Aesthetic Design Antique Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Salad Serving Set, c. 1880's

Fluidly art nouveau, the handles are deeply and brilliantly hand-chased as rippled water with a lily pad, stems and blossoming flowers applied on top. Twisting stems travel down the length of the handle. The water lily is executed in 14 carat gold. The scene consists of a lily pad with a lily bud and two other flowers of various stages of growth. A stem emerges from the leaf to a large lily flower in full bloom.
