Exceptional, this Asparagus / Pastry/ Toast Server in silver is the epitome of sophistication for your collection of sterling silver. From our latest buying trip to Europe, the quality of this fine design and the exquisite workmanship is typical of that of the finest luxury silver smiths in France such as Puiforcat, Soufflot, and Coignet. The curved blade has pierced and engraved designs of a flower basket with flowers and a French ribbon bow at the top. Divine!
The beautiful handle has a decorative Art Nouveau design of laurel leaves. The handle is sterling, the upper part of these are always silver plated. A wonderful addition to your most gracious table, these were originally designed for serving the very expensive asparagus of the day. Nowadays, savvy collectors and hosts and hostesses also use them to serve petit pastries, macarons, and toast or sandwiches.
