This 2 3/4" long, sterling silver individual salt spoon is an original, old, factory produced item and not one of the innumerable reproductions that are readily available in the the marketplace.
The pattern is "Buttercup" by Gorham, whose lion, anchor, G mark appears on the otherwise plain backside, along with the word "Sterling." There is an Old English "W" monogram on the front.
It is in excellent condition. Pattern detail remains well-defined and free of polishing wear. It retains most of its original gold wash in the bowl, which remains perfectly shaped.
