Produced by Whiting through 1926, thereafter by Gorham. Service: 11pc place setting for 12 (misses a couple of pieces in oyster fork, olive fork, as noted), 15 serving pieces including 2-pc salad service. Asparagus server, an additional 7pc hors d’oeuvres service. In my opinion, the most stunning American sterling silver pattern ever crafted, the c. 1902 “Lily” by Whiting. Luxuries were few and far between. Oh, you can’t imagine how much better simple single mom shredded wheat tasted with that one spoon. And through the years since, I added here and there, and now have such a massive collection, we’ve sectioned it out into several sets. I’m still in love with this pattern. And if you look on replacements dot com, it will explain that many others also still think this is a breathtakingly valuable pattern. Many serving pieces are hard to find, pricey. Forks are somewhere close to that. A huge set already gathered, as this one is, is rare to find, nearly impossible. There are a few odd pieces that do have a monogram. They are as beautiful from the back side (set as a French table would be) as they are from top side. This is a labor of love over 40 years in the collecting. I’ll try to break this set down for you. 2 pc Salad server set, 11.5 long, tear bowl, Whiting marks. 12 Whiting knives, 8 7/8 long. 12 Whiting butter knives, 5 5/8 long. 24 Whiting luncheon forks, 6 5/8 long. 12 Whiting cake forks. 9 Whiting oyster forks, 3 with gold tines. 6 olive forks 4 1/8 long. 12 Whiting table spoons, 8 1/8 long. 12 Whiting luncheon spoons, 7 long. 12 Whiting bullion spoons, gold bowl. 12 Whiting tea spoons, 5 3/4 long. 12 Whiting 5-o’clock spoons 5 3/8 long. 12 Whiting demitasse spoons 3 7/8 long. 8 Whiting/Gorham demitasse spoons, 18k on sterling (vermeil). 7pc hors d’oeuvres service. 15pc Whiting/Gorham serving pieces, including rare asparagus, pie, largest 2-pc salad service, various carving, service forks, knives, ladles, + + + (see images) and several Gorham pieces with more plain but specialized utensils. Set comes with wood drawer case, silver felt lined and metal side handles. The Whiting silver history dates back to 1840, as a firm “Tifft & Whiting”, The c. 1902 Patent date Art Nouveau pattern was a huge hit in the Belle Epoch, and each Whiting piece was hand crafted and heavy, elegantly made through 1926. At that time the Whiting Co. The opulent Lily pattern was continued but the original c. Gotham acquire the patterns and increased the number of pieces made of this one. Again, the old Whiting marks I’ve collected are of highest value and retain highest value. I can set Whiting beside the few newer Gotham pieces and the crispness of pattern, the weight of the piece, the beauty of detail is just finer in the old Whiting. I do have a few service pieces in Gorham in this 177-piece service being offered. The bulk of the set bears the old Whiting silver marks, dates c. The Whiting company’s most important designer was Charles Osborne. He worked in the 1880s for Tiffany before returning to Whiting.
