A late 19th century pattern, Towle's "Pomona" is a multi-motif design that features a variety of fruits.

It is artfully crafted, presenting its imagery in a series of layers, lending the pattern an overall sculpted or chiseled look.

This example is a 5 3/4" long, nearly .9 T. oz., sugar spoon portraying grapes tumbling out of a cornucopia, a pear, and peaches. The backside of the handle is plain, save for a leafy detail that appears on all pieces in the line.

The bowl has a scalloped edge with scored sides. Equally attractive as the handle, it is finished in a satin matte gold wash front and backsides, and is engraved with peaches on a branch.

Never monogrammed, this is in outstanding condition. There is no polishing wear, with all pattern detail remaining sharp and well-defined. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, or bends, and the engraving is crisp.

Marks are Towle's "standing lion in a T" emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat. Oct.11.1887."
