Whiting Sterling 'Peony Twist' Pattern Fish Serving Set, NYC, c. 1885
This lovely serving set is in the uncommon pattern referred to as 'Peony Twist'. Made from heavy gauge silver it features an unusual twist handle and a large peony blossom at the top. The serving fork depicts a wonderful peony above the tines and the blade to the server is beautifully engraved with a floral scene including a peony.
This lovely set is marked with Whiting's trademark along with 'STERLING/ 26'. The fork and flat server measure 8.25 and 9.25 inches long respectively, have a combined weight of 6.90 troy ounces, have never been monogrammed and are in very good antique condition with slight wear to the blade of the flat server.
