Gallery Label: 
The "Olympian" pattern was introduced at the Exposition Universelle, Paris in 1878, though the design was not patented until August 17. 1879 to Edward C. Moore. It is possible, however, that the design is attributable to F. Antoine Heller. Within the pattern there are seventeen different handle decorations, each depicting subjects and stories from classical mythology.
