Each of these eight egg (or could be used for ice cream) spoons is lengthy at 5 5/8", while the group weighs 5.4 T. oz. They all match and carry the same Old English "E.L.F." monogram. Five of them are stamped "Wm. Gale & Son," and three are stamped only "Sterling."
The pattern is a knot (similar to "Le Cordon") and leaf design dating c. 1860. The five spoons marked "Gale" retain full gold wash finishes on both sides of the bowls, while the "Sterling" ones show only traces of gold.They are all in excellent condition, having fine finishes, showing no evident polishing wear, and having bowls that are free of dings, dents, or burrs.
