Wallace Art Nouveau Floral Sterling Silver Sugar Spoon
click for more pictures for item 2640f
An undocumented pattern, this Art Nouveau, floral, design stands alone among Wallace offerings.
This piece is a 6 1/8" long, just over .8 T. oz., sugar spoon.
It is unusual in that the upper end of the handle is hollow, while the lower portion is tubular. This provides for a thicker than usual grip, and also enables more detailed design elements, which include a blossom, bud, and sinuous leaves set against a textured background.
The bowl is decorative, in keeping with the overall design. It has a stylized shell motif in the heel and a flower and leaf spray engraved in the smooth area, and retains a portion of an original gold wash finish.
The condition is very fine. Pattern detail remains well-defined, free of polishing wear. The bowl is without bends, dents, or burrs. There are two dimples toward the tip of the backside of the handle.
Marks are the Wallace deer head emblem and the word "Sterling."
