Nice Antique Sterling Butter Pick in the Square Twist/#2 Pattern by the Whiting Corp., circa 1880's. This piece measures 6 1/8 inches long and weighs 10.9 grams. The motif is that of a squared off twist, changing to a smaller twist halfway down the stem, becoming a smaller twist before terminating in the single smooth pick portion, which has the classic butter twist and pointed end. It's at the smooth pick end you will find the Whiting Stamp, Sterling and the #2. Condition is excellent. This pattern was produced for a very limited time in the late 19th century by Whiting, and has made a comeback as a popular pattern today, having several variations on the twist motif.
