click for more pictures for item 2534f
A prominent name in 19th century Philadelphia silversmithing, Peter L. Krider's work reflects the highest standards of the trade.
Unremarkable in terms of function, this 6 3/16" long, just under 1.0 T. oz. sugar spoon, still stands forward for its quality of design and manufacture.
It is a "King" or "Kings" pattern that compares well with other companies' interpretations of this English-inspired motif.
This has an oversized, 2 1/4" by 1 1/2", shell bowl with a frosted matte gold finish. This is large enough that it could be used for jam or preserves.
There is a delicate script "KC" monogram on the front of the handle.
It is in mint estate condition. There is no visible wear and the finish has a soft, warm, patina.
Marks are Krider's "lion, k, crown" emblem and the word "Sterling."
