My Pie Server Collection

I got obsessed with pie servers a few years back and started to collect them from flea markets. Here is my collection. Banged up, scratched, and definitely not-gently-used--but all sterling silver.

The second one from the top is my most favorite of all.  When I have a dinner at home and people bring desserts, I get excited because I get to use another old pie server. I don't even know the names of the patterns and I don't get obsessed with provenance. I just pick up what I like.

I even like them monogrammed. I bought this one above with the intention of giving it as a gift to a friend whose family name starts with S, but then decided against it. While I would love to receive something like this, not many people will appreciate receiving a beat up pie-server.

I brought them out the other day and decided to take pictures of them as a way of keeping an inventory.  

Maybe I should look for more.
