$42.00 Price per piece, five available.

Measuring 8 1/2" long, and weighing nearly 1.6 T. oz., this table or serving spoon dating circa 1880 and originating in Baltimore, is stamped with "Sterling" and "J.S. MacDonald."

It is an engraved "Lily" pattern set on an "Old English" handle, and shows the influence of Aesthetic (Eastlake) design sensibilities in its naturalistic and abstract motifs.

The background behind the engraving has a satin finish along with an "FMA" feathered script monogram.

It is in superb estate condition. The engraved remains well-defined, showing only the slightest bit of softening from polishing. The bowl is flawless, free of dents, bends, or tip wear. The overall finish is warm and even.
