Austin F. Jackson designed the Majestic pattern for Reed and Barton and it was introduced in 1894. Jackson also designed the La Marquise pattern for Reed and Barton. Majestic has stately lines with embellishments resembling leaves wrapped around the edge of the terminal and simple lines down the stem. Yet, the fret work within the pieces such as the Tomato Server, Fish Serving Knife, and Cake Serving Fork as seen here show a certain grace. There is beauty in the simplicity of the stem and elegance in the bowls and tines. Unlike the newer patterns, this is an example of quiet class.
