Finally knives, forks, and spoons, in various sizes and for different purposes, along with jam/confit spreaders, salt & pepper shakers, and toast rack, all in sterling silver, complete the presentation.
The pancake/hot cake server was designed specifically to retain the heat of the pancakes from the moment the cook removes them from the hot griddle & places a hot stack of flapjacks on the server, and puts\ the lid on top. The cook then hands off the server to the upstairs personal maid, who ensures the breakfast tray is perfect, then climbs the back servant stairs leading upstairs from the kitchen to the master bedroom to deliver the bed tray to the lady of the manor.!
