Measuring 6 3/16" long and weighing a substantial 1.2 T. oz., this spoon is stamped "Tiffany & Co.," "Sterling," and with a lower case "m," used 1907-47. Given its Arts & Crafts style of this, it no doubt traces to early in this range.
It is plain save for the end which has a hand cut, open work design. The entire surface of the piece has a smooth, highly tactile, satin-like finish that is pleasing to the hand.
It is engraved "Richard" in script on the handle.
The condition is mint. Apparently this piece saw minimal use as it shows no visible wear and has a flawless surface.
