click for more pictures for item 2698f

A lengthy piece at 9 3/16", and weighing nearly 2.6 T. oz., this spoon has an exceptionally large bowl. Shell form and with a satin gold wash, it is 3 3/4" long by 2 3/4" at the widest, and probably was made as a vegetable or salad server.

The pattern is Wallace's version of "Kings," issued in 1903, and encompasses all the traditional elements of a design derived from English antecedents. The pattern appears on both sides of the slightly upturned handle, with the front having a convex shell and the back a concave one.

It is without a monogram or removal and in exceptionally fine estate condition. The design does not show any polishing wear, with all the elements remaining sharp and well-defined. The overall finish is bright and has a warm patina. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, or burrs. There is some loss of the gold wash and a few residue dull spots where tarnish was polished away.

Marks are a "deer head with RW&S" emblem, for R. Wallace & Sons Manufacturing Company, and "Sterling."
