New York City's Theodore Evans used a maker's mark he may have borrowed from William Gale for whom he worked. This same rectangle, circle, diamond was later adopted by Dominick & Haff, so there is something of a provenance to it.

Evans added the year of manufacture in the diamond, which in the instance of this 7 1/8" long, approximately 1.1 T. oz., "French Thread" dessert spoon, was 1858. "T.E.&Co." appears in the rectangle.

This is a quality piece, with a balanced design, manufactured to a high standard, and in excellent condition. The generously proportioned bowl has a slightly pointed end and is free of wear, dings, or burrs. There is no monogram or removal.

In addition to the maker's mark, this is stamped with a "5," and the name of the retailer, which is rubbed but what remains reads, "Geo. W. xxxxxx & Co."
