click for more pictures for item 4102f

This sugar spoon measures 5 3/4" long and weighs .7 T. oz.

The pattern is "Grecian," which originated with Henry Hebbard of New York City, but eventually became a line pattern offered by Whiting. Consistent with this, this is stamped on the blade with Whiting's "winged lion" logo, "Sterling," "Pat 1862," and "1."

The design features a raised ram's head at the handle end, with the horns extending to the backside, and a satyr's face and ivy leaf and berry set midway on the handle, with an expanded ivy motif on the reverse heel of the bowl.

The bowl is scallop form has a satin matte surface and a deep, bronze colored, gold wash.

There is an exceptionally fine, Victorian period, "CN" monogram engraved on the handle.

In excellent condition, this retains full pattern clarity, without any softening of the ram's head, satyr, or ivy details. The bowl is free of bends, tears, or dents, but does have one noticeable dimple in the bottom.
