$95.00

A 6 3/4" long, relatively weighty at 1.4 T. oz. item, this small to medium sized serving spoon was produced by George Shiebler in the late 19th century.

The pattern name is "Sandringham" and the design is consistent with this appelation, in that it is English courtly.

The handle, which has beaded margins, is capped with what appears to be a near exact representation of the three feather herldic badge of the Prince of Wales.

References list the issue date of this pattern as 1895, but the reverse of this is imprinted "PAT 92" in contradiction to this. Other marks include the Shiebler "winged S" and "Sterling."

The 1892 date may connect to the origins of this pattern given that same year, Queen Victoria's grandson, Albert Victor, died at Sandringham and the building experienced a major fire.

Whatever its source, it is a handsome composition, and complemented by an imaginatively designed, and quite dramatic, bowl. It is pear-shaped, deep, with a flange border, rippled walls, an embossed interior, and finished back and front sides with a rich, bronze colored gold wash.

There is a "CGD" script monogram engraved on the vertical on the handle front.

The condition is mint estate. There is no wear whatsoever. The bowl is flawless and the finish is bright and even.
