Kirk's oldest pattern, "King" remained in production throughout the life of the company.
These examples are stamped "S.Kirk & Son," which was used beginning in 1932 until 1961 according to one reference and until 1979 according to another.
They are cream soup spoons, measuring 6 1/8" long. There are 14 of these, all matching, with the same script "ELS" monogram on the backside. They all weigh between 1.2 and 1.3 T. oz., with one exception which is extra weight at 1.5 T. oz.
They are in immaculate condition, with clear, sharply-defined pattern detail. The finishes are bright, showing no visible wear. The bowls are flawless with no dents, burrs, or nicks.
