Applied Medallion Coin Silver Twist Handle Oyster Ladle
click for details
"Medallion" silverware is characterized by its portraiture of classical figures and was popular in the 1860s. Virtually all makers offered one or more interpretations of this motif, the bulk of which were die cut patterns, while some were engraved, and some cast and applied, as is the case with this example.

It is a 10" long, just under 4.4 T. oz., probably oyster, ladle. Oyster ladles were slightly smaller than that soup, which could run to as much as 14" in length in the mid 19th... Click for details
