The prominent New York City firm of Wood & Hughes produced several "Medallion" patterns in the 1860s period when such classically inspired imagery was popular.

The portraiture on this 8 3/4" long, just under 2.0 T. oz., coin silver, berry spoon is anecdotally referred to as the "Diana Medallion," as identified by D.A. Soeffing in his 1988 benchmark work on this class of silver...

Introduced in 1875, Wood & Hughes' "Viola" incorporates multiple design elements.

These include a dominant Gothic Revival arched structure that comprises the sides and end of the handle, and which in sum resembles a cathedral ceiling. Other components are suggestive of acanthus and palmetto leaves, typical of Greek and Egyptian Revival motifs.

In total it is a well-constructed and balanced design that is thoroughly evocative of its mid-Victorian period...

Dating to the mid 20th century (1952), this 7 1/2" long, weighty at 2.0 T. oz., fork is fully hallmarked for the year, sterling, and maker, "Worcester Silver Company," London, England.

While a relatively contemporary piece, the scrolled terminal pattern, "Onslow," is an older English design, and the three tine configuration also harkens to an earlier period, all defining this as a reproduction piece.

Never monogrammed, it is in excellent estate condition...
