"Grecian" originated with Henry Hebbard of New York City, but eventually became a line pattern within Whiting.

The design features a raised ram's head at the handle end, and a satyr's face and ivy leaf and berry set midway on the handle, with an expanded ivy motif on the backside heel of the bowl.

This example is an 8 3/8" long, 1.7 T. oz., serving or table spoon, with the name "Sanford." engraved in script, set sideways on the handle front.

This is an early piece, unidentified as to maker, and otherwise marked "Sterling," "Pat. 1862," and with the name of the retailer, Boston's "A. Stowell & Co."

It is in very fine condition. The figures on this pattern are susceptible to polishing wear and this shows little of that. The bowl remains well-shaped, without dents or tip wear, but does have interior surface scratches and one stray pinprick dimple. There is an even patina.
