A large item measuring 9" long and weighing just under 2.5 T. oz., this spoon is marked "W&H" for "Wood & Hughes," New York City, "Pat. 1878," and "Sterling."

The pattern is "Venetian," which is a Moorish design that incorporates intricate tracery arrayed on an arch-like handle.

The bowl is decidedly distinct in style and scale. Plum-shaped, it is 4" long by 2 3/8" wide by 1" deep, has a central vee running the length of the base, and flange shoulders.

The interior is engraved in a leaf and flower spray and finished in a satin matte gold wash, while the reverse has a bright gold surface.

The handle is engraved with a particularly handsome "CB" Victorian period monogram that is embellished with trailing branches with leaves.

In immaculate condition, this shows no visible wear, has a flawless bowl that is free of dents, bends, or nicks, and exhibits an overall bright and even finish.
