A long item for its form at 6 1/2", and heavier feeling than its .9 T. oz. actual weight, this coin silver cream or sauce ladle traces to the second quarter of the 19th century. It is marked "Boynton & Woodford for the Boston retail partnership with dates 1837-54.

The "Tipt" end pattern places it toward the earlier end of those years. A graceful piece, the handle is arced with an upturned terminus. The plain, well-formed, bowl is ovoid at 1 7/8" by 1 1/2" by 7 1/16" deep. "

There is a script "S.A.B" monogram set sideways on the handle reverse.

In very good estate condition, the only signs of use are light surface scratches consistent with age. There are no bends, dents, or burrs, and the finish shows a warm patina.
