Larmour & Co. (Baltimore) Coin Silver Youth Spoon
This c. 1865 silver youth spoon was presented to "Walter" on his "One Year" birthday according to the inscription on the front. The backside is stamped "Coin" and "Larmour & Co." for the Baltimore firm that became Armiger & Co. It is a highly finished piece that has fine engraving including feathering along the edge of the handle, and an acanthus-like design on the tipt end. The bowl has a gold wash on the interior. It is in superb condition. Apart from two shallow dimples in the bowl (perhaps Walter was sometimes a little insistent about being fed), there are no signs of wear.
