Description

A sterling silver ice cream slice, mark of Bigelow & Kennard, Boston, circa 1880 with original satin finish, acid etched with scrolling blossoms and leaves; length is 12 1/8 inches, weight is 6.90 troy ounces. One method of serving ice cream during the 19th century was to bring the confection to the table in a single block, either by itself or in a baked crust, and serving it in slices. Sterling silver ice cream servers or slices were used to serve the delicacy. In 1802 a guest at the President's house said that Mr. Jefferson served ice cream in a piping hot crust which "...crumbled into thin flakes."
