ABOUT: Here is an a massive and very heavy, beautifully designed serving spoon made by Whiting Mfg. Co. with a fantastic floral pattern on the handle that extends down into the bowl. Victorian pattern that dates to around the turn of the century. The back side is also designed with a large flower and leaf and art nouveau details extending into the spoon bowl. I have a matching bon bon spoon if a larger set is desired. NO MONOGRAMS on it. I think it might be cast because of the way the back is smooth and the bowl of the spoon has that slightly hammered or textured look around the designs. I have compared this one to others in the pattern and they were all made in this manner - very high quality, likely hand finished. MEASUREMENTS: The spoon measures 9 1/2" in length. Very dense with a sturdy hand feel, not tinny or flimsy - Weighs 214 grams of solid sterling silver. MARKS AND PATTERNS: Marked Sterling on the back with the Whiting Hallmarks.
 IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES: Please note this is in estate condition with some surface scratching and utensil marks / nicks to the spoon bowl that I tried to show in pictures, as well as all over wear and scratches from use and polishing. There is one stubborn tarnish spot in the spoon bowl. There is a divot on the back side of the spoon bowl that was done in the making. The back of the spoon bowl has some scuffs and utensil nicks as well. No damage, dings or dents to any of the artwork or design, it seems to be just the smooth areas of the spoon bowl where any wear is made more evident by the mirrored finish. But Please note this is not in mint condition. Has been hand polished but I like to leave some patina so the high relief designs really stand out. I dearly love, collect, use and sell antique American sterling silver flatware and housewares including Tiffany and Co., Gorham, Durgin, Shiebler and more! I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my new store. Thanks for stopping by!
