Catalogue Description:
A silver-plate soup spoon with a plain round bowl. The molded handle has a continuous raised but unarticulated border. The straight side of the handle flares gradually from mid-point and then inward to the end of the handle to small symmetrical volutes that frame a diamond-shape projection at the crest of the handle. There are two small symmetrical cut-outs at the crest of the handle below the volutes on either side of the diamond projection. There is a dense molded wishbone-shape garland of leaves and flowers on the broad flat end of the handle. The reverse has a raised undecorated shield above a flower and leaves at its lower point in the broad area at the end of the handle. Old Colony Pattern. CONDITION - Good; normal wear; slight overall scratching and minor pitting in bowl.
