code: wb3422

American sterling silver hammered 54 piece set in the Homeric or Etruscan pattern by George W. Shiebler of New York City, c.1880. Seldom seen other than a piece or two at a time, it is extraordinary to see this many pieces with matching monograms in an ornate, period script: K. One of the most remarkable features of this set is that the medallion portraits of the Gods and Goddesses not only vary among the different pieces, but there are different portraits on both sets of forks and the tree sets of spoons, save for a repeat on 2 of the dessert spoons. Multi-motif patterns are not uncommon, but is unheard of for there to be so many dies being cut for a single pattern. The expense of cutting so many different steel dies to produce this pattern is certainly one reason for its scarcity and short production period. The initial retail price must have been well above even the premium patterns of the time. The set consists of 54 pieces as follows:
  • 11 Dinner Forks 8" long
  • 11 Dessert Forks 7" long
  • 12 Dessert or Oval Soup Spoons 6 7/8" long

  • 11 Tablespoons 8 7/8" long
