An Art Nouveau design issued in 1902, "Narcissus" is one of several floral patterns that Blackinton produced in the early 20th century.
This example is an 8 1/8", .9 T. oz., olive spoon. It is long-handle, versus standard size, which is less than 6".
The flowers are delicately scaled and arrayed around the end of the handle, with trailing leaves and buds set along the length of the shank.
The pierced bowl has flange edges, a pointed tip, and retains most of an original pale gold finish.
In choice condition, it is without a monogram. Pattern detail remains well-defined, free of polishing wear. The bowl is flawless, and the finish is lustrous.
Marks are the Blackinton "sword through a B" emblem, "Sterling," and "Patent 1902."
