click for more pictures for item 2768f

A 6 1/8" long, slightly under 1.0 T. oz., piece, this item dates from the late 19th century.

The pattern is "Cherub," by Watson, Newell & Co. It takes its name from the winged figure that appears at the tip of the extensively embellished handle. Employing acanthus leaf detailing, and with an irregularly shaped margin, the design embraces rococo sensibilities.

The figure is portrayed in two versions through the pattern line, one with upward facing, and one with downward facing, wings. This piece has a particularly high relief image, with down turned wings.

A sugar spoon, the bowl has ruffled edges and a flange rim.

It is without a monogram or removal and in choice condition. There is no polishing wear and the bowl is free of dents, bends, or nicks. There is a butler gray finish, which is smooth and even.

Marks are the Watson pennant emblem and the word "Sterling."
