$28.00

An 8 1/8" long, approximately 1.4 T. oz., piece, this spoon has a "Fiddle" shaped handle with a pronounced "Tipt" end that is typical of mid 19th century Ohio River Valley silver flatware design.

The high, pointed and steeply chamfered shoulders off the bowl are also characteristic of this region's style.

Consistent with this, it is stamped "Sterling," "925/1000," and "Duhme & Co." for the prominent Cincinnati firm. Examples of this pattern were also made in coin silver.

Engraved with a delicate script "M.A.B." monogram set sideways on the handle, it remains in superb condition. There is no evident wear and the finish is warm and even. The bowl is well-shaped, free of dents, bends, nicks, or tip wear.
