George Shiebler created some extraordinary designs, and this sardine server is no exception. The wavy handle is covered with sand, applied seaweed, and starfish. The trident-shaped fork is beautifully gilt and uses the figure of a sardine with an expressive face as its middle tine.
Provenance: Private Collection.
This magnificent and rare server is marked with Shiebler's winged 'S' trademark, 'STERLING/ 2552.' It measures 6.5 inches long, weighs 1.75 troy ounces, and is in exceptional antique condition.
