$32.00 Price per piece, two available.

A standard design that was first produced in the coin silver era, and continued after the adoption of the sterling standard in the mid 19th century, "Oval Thread" is a "Pointed Antique" with a tipped end and lined border.

This 6 15/16" long, 1.4 T. oz., example is a place, aka oval soup or dessert, spoon stamped "J.E. Caldwell & Co." for the renowned Philadelphia firm, and "925" in an oval, for sterling. This style of "925" mark was commonly used in Boston, suggesting this piece may originate from there, with a date circa 1870.

There is a feathered script "ACL" monogram on the handle front and plain script "JMH" over "1913" on the backside. Given both monograms were preserved, it was likely bequeathed to a successor some forty or fifty years on in its history.

In flawless condition, it shows no wear or damage and has a bright, even, finish. The bowl is free of dents, bends, nicks, or tip wear.
