A figural design,"Jonquil" by Unger Brothers reflects that company's well-regarded capacity in the Art Nouveau style.
This example is a 6 1/8" long, weighty feeling, .7 T. oz., olive spoon. It is without a monogram or removal. The scallop shaped bowl is especially appealing, with a swirling interior and a variety of piercings. It is finished in a light, lemon colored, gold wash front and backsides.
The condition is outstanding. There are no bends, nicks, or burrs, and the finish is lustrous.
Marks are the Unger "UB" encircled by "Sterling" and "925 Fine," along with the words "Copyright 1904."
