The William B. Durgin Company, which produced such renowned patterns as "New Art," "Dauphin," and others, offered a line of tea caddy spoons all of which utilized a single bowl form shaped like a sawtooth edge, tea leaf, companioned with various handle designs.

This 5 7/8" long, .8 T. oz., example is a naturalistic form, portraying a twisting vine that turns back on itself to form a looped handle. The surface is textured, lending it a fully authentic look.

This form was made in at least two lengths, of which this is the longer size.

The bowl has a gold wash finish and a delicate script "MCTC" monogram on the heel reverse.

It is stamped with Durgin's "D" emblem, "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, Boston's well-known jeweler and manufacturer, "Rand & Crane," with approximate dates 1886-1922.

The condition is flawless. Apart from some loss of the gold wash on the ridges of the leaf, there are no signs of use.
