HOLD

A 6" long, .8 T. oz., sugar spoon in Whiting's Renaissance Revival "Arabesque" pattern patented in 1875, and so marked along with the company "lion" logo, "Sterling," and the number "1," this sugar spoon is a particularly fine example of the line.

The central griffin figure and surrounding scroll work that gives the design its name, remain clear and well-defined.

There is a handsome "M" monogram engraved in Old English lettering in the reserve area on the handle front.

The shell bowl on this sets the piece apart in that it is shell form, has a sparkling soft satin, very pale gold, finish on the inside. This is delicately bright cut and wriggle work engraved.

It is without damage or wear, and has a flawless bowl absent dents, nicks, or bends.
