Gorgeous 2 piece antique Sterling Silver Salad Set in the IMPERIAL QUEEN PATTERN by Whiting. With gilted tines and bowl and a fancy period script monogram on their obverses, possibly 'he'?? Too elaborate to make out. Each piece measures 9 3/8" long and both in very fine condition! Hallmark located on their reverses: Whiting mark, Pat 1893, Sterling, Bailey, Banks & Biddle (the very fine retailer who these were sold through). The set is very substantial in weight and one of the prettiest patterns made in the late 19th Century! Even prettier and more detailed in person!
