This 13 1/4" ladle is probably a soup ladle but, with it's flutes bowl
could easily serve as a punch ladle. The pattern is "Tuscan" patented
in 1846. The condition is excellent with essentially no wear. It is
marked S.D. Brower (incuse) and has a raised eagle. CA 1856/55.
This 6 1/4" sauce ladle is in excellent condition and was made by
Johnson & Godley of Albany,NY between 1843 & 1849. It is marked crude
lion, J & G in a diamond, and an eagle. The bowl is 1 3/4" x 1 1/2".

I think this is a Boston pattern but I don't know it's name. In good shape,
it has no dents, cracks or breaks And the pattern is crisp.
