Tracing to the modest, mid 19th century, beginnings of a firm that came to produce some of the most striking designs, "New Art" as an example, in the history of American silver manufacturing, this coin silver sugar spoon was made by "Wm. B. Durgin," whose name is imprinted on the backside.

It measures 6" long and weighs just over .6 T. oz.

It is a "Fiddle Tipt" pattern with a scallop shell bowl.

The handle is engraved "Della" in script.

Essentially a rarity because of its age and mark, it is in very good condition. Polishing wear is nil, the engraving remains crisp, and the finish has a rich patina. The bowl is free of dents, tears, or bends, although there are perhaps three pinprick dimples.
