An early, original example of Whiting's "Lily," this bouillon spoon is marked with the company logo, the words "Sterling, "Pat. 1902," "R'd 1902," and an Old English "O." It is also stamped with the name of Philadelphia retailer "J.E. Caldwell & Co."
It measures 4 7/8" long and weighs just over .8 T. oz. There is a delicate, feathery script "FCC" monogram engraved on the front.
The condition is mint. There is no evident wear, with all the detail of this intricate pattern remaining clearly defined and crisp. The finish is brilliant, with a natural, gently polished glow.
