GOOD D&H LOUIS XIV (OLD) DESSERT SPOON
Introduced in 1888, the D&H Louis XIV pattern incorporates rococo elements found in patterns of the same period by other major makers in the US and Europe, though more restrained in its display of gently curving tendrils and suggestions of shells. The pattern is double-struck. This dessert spoon is in excellent condition, with no dents, nicks, or bends. The finish is excellent. A script monogram of EJM is lightly inscribed on the front of the spoon. The back of the handle is marked with the D&H logo and the word “Sterling.” Its length is 6-15/16 inches and weighs a good 40 grams.
