Vintage From Paul is delighted to offer these stunning silver plated, cake serving set from Holmes & Edwards in the 1903 classic American Beauty Rose pattern. The two pieces of this set include a serrated cake server and an angel food/sponge cake knife, often referred to as a "cake breaker".

The handles of both pieces are silver plated (we thought they were sterling but could not find the sterling silver mark) and the blades/tines are in stainless steel. The stainless steel portions were manufactured by A.E. Lewis and Company of Sheffield England and are marked as such.

The cake server measures 10-1/4 inches in length; the handle measures 4 inches. The cake breaker measures 11-1/4 inches in length. There are a total of 18 slightly pointed tines to the cake breaker.

Cake breakers look like large combs with extended tines. The long tines are used to “break” into a cake before the cake is actually sliced and served. This piece is most often used with the cake knife and/or the serving cake fork.

Both pieces of this Holmes & Edwards American Beauty Rose Silver Cake Set are in Mint condition with no wear, pitting or other defects to the silver and they appear to have been gently used and lovingly cared for in the past.
