The pattern is Unger Brothers' Art Nouveau "Douvaine."
An expressive design, it features a dolphin or fish like image at the tip of the handle, and a renaissance or gargoyle like figure set midway on the handle.
This is all surrounded by an array of flowing detail that includes a crossed ribbon motif that extends down the lower part of the handle clear to the bowl.
There is no monogram or removal of same.
As stated, the condition is choice. All pattern detail remains clear and well-defined. The finish is bright and the bowl is perfectly-shaped, free of tip wear, dents, or nicks.
Marks are Unger's entwined "UB" encircled by "Sterling 925 Fine."
