Durgin "Chrysanthemum" Sterling Silver Sugar Spoon
click for more pictures for item 2131f
Durgin set a standard for chrysanthemum design interpretations in silver with its 1893 pattern by the same name. The portraiture is dense, detailed, and high relief. It also carries onto the serving ends, adding to the sense of richness.
This example is a 6" long sugar spoon, and consistent with the character of the line, has robust heft at nearly 1.4 T. oz.
It is in very fine condition and without a monogram or removal. There is no evident polishing wear. The bowl is free of dents, nicks or burrs, having only light surface scratches consistent with normal use. It retains a portion of its original gold wash finish.
Marks are the Durgin "D" emblem, "Sterling," "925/1000 Sterling," and the name of the retailer, Providence, Rhode Island's "Wood, Bicknall & Potter."
