Rare Durgin Dauphin Pierced Sterling Olive Spoon
Particularly handsome pierced olive spoon in the rare Dauphin pattern by Durgin, first made in 1897. Just a tad longer than 6 inches, this piece is skillfully pierced and very well finished on front and back, a sign of the care lavished on American sterling flatware by the better manufacturers in the late 19th century. There is a delicate script monogram on the back of the handle. More photographs are available and can be emailed on request.
