Featuring a pharaoh or sphinx-like figure flanked by ibis birds at the handle end, and papyrus leaves midway down, Whiting's "Egyptian" issued in 1875 was an expression of the Egyptian Revivalist movement of the period.

This example is a 5 7/8" long, .7 T. oz., sugar spoon with a shell bowl finished in a gold wash.

It is engraved "Jenny" in script set sideways on the handle.

In excellent condition, it retains all the original fine line detail of the pattern. The bowl is free of dents, bends, or burrs, although there is some loss of the gold from polishing, particularly evident on the backside. The overall finish is bright and even.

Marks are Whiting's "lion" logo, "Sterling," "Pat. Appl. For" (indicating it is an early production item), and the name of the retailer "W.D. Perrine," Lyons, New York.
