Lot 1079
A Sterling Flatware Service by Towle. United States, c. 1930's and later. To accompany thepreceding serving dish, a fine, robust set of sterling forks and spoons, and more -- also Louis XIV pattern (patented 1924). This set appears to be one that was built up over a number of years, and includes obviously older, along with newer examples of this pattern. However, the pattern seems to have been discontinued some time ago. The Louis XIV design shows much more delicacy and restraint than one would expect, yet without losing the intricacy and sense of richness that attaches to the idea of "French-style cutlery." The pattern displays borders of minute linked flowers and leaves, with a dramatic floral swag here and there, the whole balanced by the geometric angles of the handle.

This set has place settings for 12, and include: demitasse, boullion, cream soup, ice, tea, and fruit spoons. Plus, relish, salad, lunch, dinner, and ice cream(?) forks; not to mention dinner and butter knives. Rounding out the group are a large and a small "serving knife," a cold cut prong, sugar tongs, a large serving fork, six large serving spoons, a ladle, and a deep-bowled spoon, and sterling-handled knife sharpener. Th oldest items in this set are the two pair of salt and pepper shakers. All handles are monogramed with an antique "S" of consistent style. The shakers with the same "S," but earlier in style, along with the added letters "E" and "A." Some of the older pieces show some wear to the handles, while most of the set evidences light to little use. The sharpener,and the dinner and serving knives with steel or stainless blades, while all the rest are wholly sterling. Total weight, excluding the afore mentioned knives and sharpener, of at least 161 oz. of Sterling silver. Comparing prices charged for replacement pieces of this pattern, costs for the above thirteen-piece setting ranges from about $375 to $500 per setting. For those whose last name begins with S, check this out!
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,500.
