Durgin "Scroll" Elaborate Sterling Silver Sugar Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends

Durgin
click for details
Taking its name from a generic design term, Durgin's 1886 "Scroll" is a much more complex pattern than the designation might imply.

This example is a 5 11/16" long, weighty at... Click for details
