Retailed by Greenleaf & Crosby, a storied name in Florida jewelry and fine goods, this 6 1/8" long, .9 T. oz., spoon was made by William B. Durgin of Concord, New Hampshire, around the turn of the 20th century.

It is a souvenir piece depicting the city of St. Augustine, specifically the landmark "Old City Gates," as acid etched on the handle backside.

Generally found as a teaspoon, this is the less common citrus spoon variant, with a long, narrow, deep, bowl with a flange margin and pointed tip.

The portraiture on the handle is finely rendered, presenting in a chiseled, sculptural, manner.

Without any added inscription, it is in flawless estate condition. The design remains sharply detailed, showing no polishing wear. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, or burrs, while the overall finish is bright and even.

Marks are the Durgin "D" emblem, "Sterling," and "Greenleaf & Crosby Co."
