Wallace Silversmiths Violet Sterling Silver Set/4 Butter Knives Stainless Steel Blades No Monogram
Dating to the mid century, may I offer this set of 4 butter knives (yes, I picture more than that but I sold 8 of the pieces) from Wallace Silversmiths in the Violet pattern. The handles are sterling while the blade is stainless steel; the set looks to be unused and is bright and shiny with NO monogram!
Metal Content: Sterling Silver and Stainless Steel
Hallmarks: The Elk hallmark for Wallace as well as STERLING at the bottom of the handle; Wallace Stainless on the blade.
Size: Length on a straight line is 6-1/8".
Weight: Each knife weighs 42 grams but most of that is the blade and handle filler.
Final Comments: Absolutely gorgeous!
NOTE: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take 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 as possible. 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.
Buy with Confidence. Robins Nest Midwest has the highest rating a shop can attain on RL.
