Originally working in Gardner, Massachusetts, Porter George Blanchard became arguably the premier name in the history of 20th century, hand crafted silver production in California, where sources indicate he established himself in 1923, and joined shortly thereafter by his father and brother.

His 1920 "Lotus," which is the pattern on this 6 1/8" long, .7 T. oz., teaspoon, exhibits the clean, simple lines and textured surfaces that define the Arts & Crafts style.

The bowl is particularly appealing, with a markedly pointed tip and exceptionally smooth inner surface. Given its shape, it could double as a citrus spoon.

The handle backside is hammered and engraved with a block letter "C.W.C" monogram. It is also stamped "Sterling" and with Porter's early "B09" mark.

In superb condition, this shows no evident wear. It is free of nicks, bends, or burrs, and offers up a rich patina.
