The Romance of the Sea pattern was designed by Wallace's chief designer William S. Warren in 1950 and was one of their "Third Dimension Beauty" patterns. These patterns were considered sculptures. It is a midcentury design paying homage to the sea. The base of the handle features seaweed with a pearl, a stream of bubbles ascend the handle, and the tip culminates in waves with a stylized sea shell. The pattern name is signed on the back tip of each piece's handle. It is a very dramatic pattern that continues to make a statement.
