Francis 1st is one of the most popular American sterling silver. Introduced in 1906, named after King. Francis I of France. It was designed by Ernest Meyer, a French silversmith. His goal was to create a pattern that eclipsed the splendid Renaissance-Baroque metalwork of. Court artist and sculptor in the court of King Francis I who ascended the French throne in 1515. It took him three years to design. The pattern is unique, given that, unlike other flatware patterns, it has fifteen different fruit-and-flower clusters. Each handle bears one of these detailed designs. This scalloped casserole spoon, measuring 9″ long and 2-3/4″ wide at the bowl, is one of the rarer serving pieces and hasn’t been manufactured in over 50 years.
