Marked only "Sterling," this circa 1865 "Kings" pattern is readily identified. Among other features, it incorporates a rosette in the design, which was a detail particular to Philadelphia's Peter L. Krider, later Krider & Biddle.

This attribution is further reinforced by the somewhat eggplant-shaped bowl with raised central ribbing on this 8 1/2" long, approximately 1.8 T. oz., berry or serving spoon. This is a form singular to Krider.

The interior of the bowl has a matte gold finish.

Never monogrammed, this is in superb estate condition. There is no polishing wear, and the finish is bright. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, or burrs, with the only sign of use being a bit of scuffing on the backside where it rests.
