Originally associated with Arthur Stone, Gardner, Massachusetts, arguably the most well-known American silversmith of the early 20th century Arts & Crafts movement, George Erickson established himself as an outstanding craftsman in his own right, with the tradition carried on to his grandson Peter today.

This 12 1/4" long, 2.4 T. oz., ladle is variously identified as a lemonade, bar, or martini spoon.

An estate piece, this is an early example of Erickson's work, tracing directly to him. Dorothy Rainwater in Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers notes, "His first mark, 'G.C.E.,' used in 1932 was soon changed to 'Erickson Silver,'" which is the mark that appears on the backside of this.

It is a "Pointed Antique" with a tipt back design, currently identified as "Princess." The bowl is plum shaped, 3" long by 1 5/8" at the widest, by 1/2" deep.

All surfaces have a smooth, bright, finish, save for the backside of the bowl which shows hammering marks.

The handle front is engraved "JPB" in script lettering.

It is in flawless condition, free of any damage or signs of use.
