Issued in the mid 1870s, Wood & Hughes "Viola" is a period pattern, successfully incorporating then prevalent Renaissance Revival design elements, as well as borrowing from the Greek and Gothic Revival fashion of the previous decade.

This example is an 8 3/4" long, 1.9 T. oz., berry or other serving spoon with an exceptionally attractive bowl with a matte gold finish, bright cut and wriggle work engraved, interior. The backside has a bright gold wash.

In mint estate condition, this shows no evidence of use save for some loss of the gold on the bowl reverse. The finish is bright and smooth.

Marks are "W&H," "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, "Benedict Bros.," New York City.
