The engraved design on this 11 1/4" long, 3.7 T. oz., circa 1870, platter or basting spoon is reminiscent of Gorham's contemporaneous die-struck "Grecian," and one akin to it made by Wood & Hughes.

Marked "*F.&H.*" and "Sterling," it was produced by Boston's Farrington & Hunnewell and is a standard although unnamed pattern of the company.

The size is exceptional, making it a truly unusual example from its period.

The 4" by 2 3/8" at the widest by 5/8" deep, bowl is shell form and extensively engraved in a multi-leaf motif.

The backside is plain, save for the marks.

There is a reserve area on the front, which has never been monogrammed or inscribed.

In outstanding estate condition, this shows no wear or damage, and has a bright finish. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, or bends.
