This elegant pair of antique sterling silver matched ramekin holders was made by Frank M. Whiting of North Attleboro, Massachusetts. The baskets of these antique Whiting sterling ramekin holders were made in an elaborate reticulated pattern made up of scrolls and repeating geometric shapes. The bottom edge of the baskets have a small lip designed to hold ceramic ramekin inserts in place. The decorative handles are just under 2.5" long, and also have a pierced motif with scrolling designs. The cartouches at the outside end of the handles have not been monogrammed.

The ramekin holders are in very good condition showing the signs of age and use expected in antique items. The pieces have some spots of tarnish as well as light scuffs to their surface, but do not have any dents, deep scratches or missing material. The back of the handles bear the Whiting "W" hallmark along with the word "STERLING" and the number "6902".

The ramekins are 1.25" tall from the tabletop to the top edge of the ramekin's basket and 5.5" long from the outside edge of the ramekin's basket to the opposite edge o the handle. The baskets themselves are 2 5/8" in diameter at the bottom and 3" across the mouth. The pieces have a combined weight of 2oz.

These lovely pieces would be a great addition to a collection of antique sterling silver holloware, or work well as stand alone pieces. Great for display or for use on the table.
