Marked only "Coin," absent a maker's stamp, this 8 7/8" long, 2.0 T. oz., berry or other serving spoon with a twisted shank and engraved and engine turned, notched, handle is reminiscent of a die struck pattern named "Imperial" that was produced by both Gorham and Wood & Hughes about 1860.

It is a handsome item exhibiting sophisticated design and manufacturing processes.

The twist feature was a favored device in the period, as was the fine engine turned surface complimented by precise bright cut engraving, which includes a reserve area inscribed with a "Mc E" monogram.

The shell form bowl is generously proportioned and finished in an intact, bright gold wash on the interior.

The backside of the piece is plain save for the aforementioned word "Coin."

In outstanding condition, this is essentially without evidence of use. The engraving remains crisp, the bowl is free of dents, bends, or nicks, and the finish is warm and even.
