Wood & Hughes

The prominent New York City firm of Wood & Hughes produced several "Medallion" patterns in the 1860s period when such classically inspired imagery was popular.

The portraiture on this 8 3/4" long, just under 2.0 T. oz., coin silver, berry spoon is anecdotally referred to as the "Diana Medallion," as identified by D.A. Soeffing in his 1988 benchmark work on this class of silver. He describes this design as "particularly Grecian in its appearance."

This is an exceptionally fine example in... Click for details
