A pattern originated by New York's John Polhamus and later continued by George Shiebler, "Diamond" is an elaborate Gothic Revival design.

This 7 1/8" long, approximately 1.0 T. oz., preserve spoon is stamped with Shiebler's early "GW over S" mark, "Pat. 74," "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, Boston's "Palmer, Bachelder & Co."

A striking feature of the piece is the shovel-shaped bowl with scalloped edges, a grooved base, and a finely engraved, gold washed surface. This form is exclusive to Shiebler, and even then uncommon.

The handle is engraved with an Old English "D" monogram on the front.

In superb condition, the only sign of use is some slight rubbing of the gold wash in the bowl, otherwise there is no wear. The finish is bright and even.
