click for more pictures for item 2714f
A 5 7/8" long, .8 T. oz., item, this teaspoon is engraved "March 18, 1898" on the handle reverse and with a delicate, fancy, feathered script "WMC" monogram on the front.
The pattern is Watson's "Cherub," which takes its name from the winged (upward tilting) figure that appears at the tip of the extensively embellished handle. Employing acanthus leaf detailing, and with an irregularly shaped margin, the design embodies a rococo sensibility.
The piece is in excellent condition. Polishing wear is nil, and the finish has a warm patina. The bowl remains well-shaped and free of dents or tip wear, but shows light flecking.
