A substantially sized piece, measuring 8 3/4" long and weighing 1.4 T. oz., this spoon traces to the mid 19th century.

It is marked "Huntington & LaBoyteaux" for a partnership that existed 1850-56, between William C. Huntington, who first established himself in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1846, and Issac N. LaBoyteaux (Cincinnati Silver, Amy Dehan).

The "exaggerated fiddle handle and pointed shoulders" form is "typical of flatware associated with Cincinnati in the mid-19th century" (Dehan).

This has a feathered script "GBLR" feathered script monogram engraved sideways on the handle.

It is in very good condition, showing scant signs of use and having a fine finish. The bowl remains well-shaped, and free of tip wear or bends, but does present with some shallow pebbling in the base.
