Alvin "Morning Glory" Art Nouveau Sterling Olive Spoon
click for more pictures for item 2615f
A late Art Nouveau design dating to 1909, Alvin's "Morning Glory" offers a sensitive, perhaps even tender, interpretation of this delicate flower.
Fully expressed on both the front and backsides of the handle, but with different portraiture, the design incorporates multiple blossoms set forth in intricate, precise, detail.
This example is a 6 1/8" long, approximately .5 T. oz., olive spoon.
The plum-shaped bowl has a pierced interior, cut in leaf and apostrophe shapes.
The piece is without a monogram or removal and in mint estate condition. There is no polishing wear and finish is bright and even. The bowl is free of nicks, burrs, or breaks in the piercing.
Marks are the Alvin emblem, and the words "Sterling" and "Patent."
