A multi-motif floral design dating from 1887, Towle "Orchids" reflects Aesthetic influences in its dense, low relief, design.

This example is a 7 1/8" long, substantial weight at 1.7 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon.

It has a decorative bowl, with scalloped shoulders and a swirling design imprinted in part of the interior. It is also engraved in a flower and leaf motif that matches the overall pattern. The matte surface retains a light portion of its original pale gold finish.

It is in excellent condition and without a monogram or removal. Apart from light surface scratches consistent with age, there are no signs of use. The bowl is well-shaped and free of dents, nicks, or burrs.

Marks are the Towle emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat. Appd. For," this suggesting it is an early production piece.
