Silver Flatware Sets

157-Piece Sterling Set (Estate Silver)
Lap Over Edge by Tiffany & Co.
Special Price - $85,499.00
Item code - TISLAOE1 157-1S

This recently acquired Lap Over Edge sterling flatware set by Tiffany & Co., has become the talk of Replacements, Ltd.’s visitors and staff. This stunning set, on display in our Showroom, was originally purchased in 1882 by Samuel Waters Allerton for his second wife, Agnes C. Thompson. Mr. Allerton was quite wealthy and made his fortune in real estate, banking, and other commercial enterprises. His first wife was Pamilla Thompson Allerton and she bore him one son, Robert Henry Allerton. Tragically, in 1880, Pamilla Allerton passed away. Two years later, Mr. Allerton married Pamilla’s younger sister, Agnes.

As a gift to his new wife, he purchased this amazing sterling flatware set and had an intricate “ACA” monogram engraved on each piece. (The Allerton’s lived happily on Prairie Avenue, which at the time was the most fashionable neighborhood in Chicago. The Allerton’s neighbors included the Marshall Fields, the Pullmans, the Kimballs, and the Armours.) This Lap Over Edge set was inherited by William Deishton, who then willed it to the family housekeeper, Hadie. The set was eventually sold to another party, who then contacted us regarding our interest in the set. We consider it an honor to have a complete set of Lap Over Edge as the pattern and pieces are indeed quite rare.

Lap Over Edge was designed by Charles Grosjean. The popular pattern was quickly patented and introduced by Tiffany in 1880. The pattern has since earned a reputation as being one of Tiffany’s most innovative designs. Each piece begins as a sterling blank to which hand-crafted motifs and designs are then added. The result is a diverse collection of artistic elements that come together to form the whole of the set. Lap Over Edge is a beautifully understated pattern produced for the refined collector of sterling silver who looks more to own art than a sterling collection. The pattern’s simplicity provided for much creativity via a wide variety of hand-imparted etchings, chasings and, monograms. As mentioned above, there is also a graceful “ACA” monogram found on each piece. Another unique feature of this set are the great number of different pieces.

This set contains service for 12 and includes luncheon forks, caviar knives, ice cream forks, fish knives, dessert knives, and oyster forks. Serving pieces in this set include the vegetable spoon, gravy ladle, master butter knife, cheese scoop, carving set, salad serving set, sugar tongs, asparagus tongs, waffle server, pie fork, ice cream fork, ice cream slicer, oyster ladle, and berry/casserole spoon! To put the value of this set in context, in 1987, Christie’s Auction House of London sold a 147-piece Lap Over Edge service for 12 for $99,000.00. Replacements, Ltd. currently offers this 157-piece service for 12 for $99,999.00. If you are interested in this great set, please contact us today!
