height 2; top diameter 1 3/4 inches, weight 2.4 Troy ounces, no monogram, marked as shown in third enlargement, some very minor insults to foot but fine overall condition.

As mentioned elsewhere on these pages, Porter's work is of inconsistent quality. Here, the soldering is a bit sloppy and the hammering is rather random. So let's just consider that part of the charm, if we may.

Watson Cast "Cherub" Heart Shaped Bowl Sterling Silver Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3489f   $42.00


click for details
Produced by Watson, this version of "Cherub," while similar and perhaps a variant, is to be distinguished from the company's full line pattern with this name (see Old Friends item 2714f for comparison).

The figure on this 4 1/4" long, unusually heavy at nearly .5 T. oz., spoon appears to be cast rather than die struck, and possesses much more dimension and detail than the line design.

Indeed, the youthful image evinces an angelic, innocent, and ethereal quality, suggesting she or he is not... Click for details
