This rare and useful server, which could be used for just about any pastry, features a tapering rectangular blade and a "Repoussé" pattern handle of floral and scrolling decoration. It is monogrammed "SMC" in a foliate cursive style on the blade. Jacobi and Jenkins, and later Jenkins and Jenkins, made some of the finest Baltimore silver at the turn of the century.
