This large server, which could easily double for cake, is wonderfully designed and executed.  Beautiful bright-cut engraving of flowers flows down the blade.  The handle is decorated with dense classical style decoration, and the reserve has been monogrammed "NMF" in a foliate cursive style. The back is unadorned except for the short rib on the antique style handle.
