click for more pictures for item 4034f

An early Durgin design, sometimes marked with a company identifier and sometimes not, the "Strawberry" pattern was made in coin silver and continued in production through the transition to a sterling standard.

This 7" long, nearly 1.5 T. oz., place or dessert spoon is stamped "Patent.," "Palmer, Bachelders & Co.," for the Boston retailer, 1864-84, and "Pure Coin," which was a term used in New England.

In excellent condition, polishing wear is nil. All the details of the pattern, clear to the seeds on the berry fruit and veins on the leaves, remain clear and sharp. The bowl is well-shaped, without dents, nicks, or bends, or tip wear. The finish is bright and even.

There is a script "LB" monogram on the handle front.
