“Lariat is the original name, although Heisey first referred ti the pattern as Gordian Knot……..The inspiration for this pattern was supposedly from the twisting of a heavy gold watch chain.” (page 300).
It’s been such a long time since I have posted on my blog that I can’t even recall where I bought this pretty piece. I have such a weakness for these center handle servers. I rarely use them or sell them and they are difficult to store, but they call out to me!
This one had such a pretty handle and such a rich colour that I couldn’t resist it.
