Unmarked coin silver gravy ladle in the "Jenny Lind" pattern. 6 inches long. Probably by Albert Coles of NYC. Ca. 1855-78. P. T. Barnum introduced the American public to Jenny Lind, "the Swedish nightengale." She was a nationwide smash as a singer, despite some criticism of her talent. Engraved "Sue Greenfield" in copperplate script. Thus a silver pattern named after her. Bowl is perfect. Some wear on the drop. Otherwise like new. I also have for sale a teaspoon in the same pattern marked with Coles' "Pigtail man" mark.
