Watson Newell's "Orchid" is one of numerous floral designs the company produced in the early part of the 20th century that yet stand as exemplary expressions of Art Nouveau design.

This example is a 5" long, .9 T. oz., cream ladle.

The flower is fully three-dimensional, rising out of the end of handle and folding over on itself in a highly expressive manner, with trailing leaves tracing their way up the handle margins, front and back sides.

The scalloped edge bowl has a flange margin and rippled interior.

Never monogrammed, it is in very fine estate condition. There is no polishing wear, nor bends, dents, or burrs. The finish is bright and even.

Marks are "pennant" emblem of the Mechanics division of Watson and "Sterling."
