A bon bon or nut spoon in a style that was popular from the late 1800's to early 1900's, this piece is marked "Bigelow, Kennard & Co." for the Boston retailer, and "Sterling." Gorham produced a number of items of various sizes in this fashion, and that company may have been the maker of this. This piece measures 4 5/8" long and is heavy at 1.2 T. oz. It is a cast handle joined to a cast bowl, both of which sections are highly decorative. The handle features a cherubic figure playing a flute. This is in the manner of Gorham's "Versailles" or Dominick & Haff's "Labors of Cupid". The rest of the design incorporates elaborate scrolling acanthus leaves interspersed with florettes. The entire piece is finished in an intact gold wash. The backside has a flowing script "SLK" monogram.
