Identified by an "arrow" emblem, which along with the word "Coin," appears on the reverse of this 7" long, .9 T. oz., preserve spoon, the firm of Schohay & Ludwig was a short-lived Philadelphia silver manufacturer established in 1867.

This piece has a twisted stem, broad, slightly tipt end handle, and a bowl that is chased with raised fruit and engraved with leaves and stems.

The handle is wriggle work and bright cut engraved, and in this instance inscribed "April 17th 1870" set sideways on the handle.

Showing essentially no wear, the stem remains straight, the bowl is free of dents or bends, the engraving is crisp, and the overall finish is warm and even. The bowl retains traces of an original gold wash, front and back sides.
