Rare Thirteen-Piece American Sterling Silver Ice Cream Service

1901-1903, by Dominick & Haff, New York, New York, retailed by J. E. Caldwell & Co., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, including an ice cream tray of wavy rectangular form, 17" x 11-1/4", and twelve ice cream dishes, dia. 4", decorated with a shaped applied foliate rim quartered by realistically detailed hydrangea.
170.65 total t. oz.

Notes: Hydrangea, particularly the "Annabelle" variety, are known as "snowball bushes" after the large, white spherical clusters of blossoms they form. It was this association that made them a popular decorative motif for ice cream services in the early 20th century.
