Measuring 7 1/4" long and weighing 1.3 T. oz., this preserve spoon was made by Wallace whose "RW&S with deer head" emblem and the word "Sterling" appear on the backside.
The pattern is "Violet," one of several Art Nouveau floral designs Wallace produced early in the 20th century. It is an expressive, true to life portraiture, with the design carrying into the matte finish, gold washed bowl.
There is a script "MKW" monogram.
It is in impeccable condition. There is no evident wear whatsoever, nor damage. The bowl remains perfectly shaped and free of dents, nicks, burrs, or loss of the gold finish.
