Dating from 1880, Whiting's "Antique Tip" has a notched, pointed end, handle with a diamond-shaped drop flanked by two scrolls. In their entirety, the design elements resemble a fleur-de-lis.

This example is 9" long, approximately 1.8 T. oz., (probably berry) serving spoon. The plum-shaped bowl is elongated, relatively narrow, and has a lip edge. It is finished in a satin matte gold wash front and back sides.

The otherwise plain handle has an embellished leaf script "P" monogram.

It is in choice estate condition, showing very little evidence of use, having a warm, even finish, and with a bowl that is free of dents or nicks.

Marks are the Whiting "lion and W" emblem, "Sterling," "16," and the name of the retailer, Boston's "N.G. Wood & Son."
