Easterling, Southern Grandeur Pattern (1944), STERLING SILVER, Biscuit, Cake, Cheese, Server
One of my consignors takes in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items I can.
Up for offer now…
ITEM: From Easterling, here's a solid silver biscuit - cake - cookie - cheese or tomato server. The pattern is Southern Grandeur and I must admit, the piece has a well cast CRISP top. No monogram on the back. Comes in the Wallace Sterling sleeve I found it in.
CONDITION: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time (one small line at the bottom of the server). The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver. If a high shine and perfect finish is desired, all that’s needed is a professional polish on a jewelers wheel.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: Easterling (Hammer Mark) STERLING Pat
SIZE: Length on a straight line is 8-1/8"; width at the serving end is 3-1/8".
WEIGHT: 71 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Scrumptious! Lowest price I can find is $69.99 on the auction site so I think I will do a little better.
FINAL COMMENTS: When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
