Illustrated in William Hood's comprehensive volume Tiffany Silver Flatware 1845-1945, the pattern on this 4" long, .3 T. oz. (9 gram) demitasse or coffee spoon is, citing Hood's terminology, a "no-name" but catalogued design.

The portraiture is "Ivy," which is abundantly represented in high relief on both the front and backsides of an essentially "Pointed Antique," upturned handle, which in this instance is engraved with an "FK" script monogram in the obverse reserve area.
