click for more pictures for item 2530f
An early, original, piece of Whiting's stand-out Art Nouveau "Lily" pattern, this 9 1/8" long, heavy, 3.3 T. oz., salad serving spoon is marked with the Whiting lion logo, "Sterling," "Pat. 1902," "R'd 1902," and with the name of the retailer, Salem, Massachusetts "Daniel Low & Co."
It is distinguished by an elongated bowl, 3 1/2" by 2 1/16" at the widest, which in this instance retains very slight traces of an original gold wash.
It is without a monogram or removal and in mint estate condition. The pattern retains excellent detail showing minimal polishing softening only on the high points of the design. The bowl is flawless, free of any dents, nicks, burrs, or tip wear.
