The "Aesthetic" motifs empolyed on this finely engraved, 8 5/8" long, approximately 1.7 T. oz., berry or other serving spoon reflect the same design sensibilities that informed the Eastlake style of its c. 1870 period.

The handle is "Old English" with a rounded end and "Tipt" backside.

It is diamond cut engraved in a motif that incorporates grasses, a fern leaf, and a central floral rosette.

The bowl has a pointed tip, notched edges, and five raised vees extending toward the center.

It is finished in a bright gold wash front and backsides, and bright cut in a large leaf spray with wriggle work on the margins, all compatible with the work on the handle.

The backside is plain, save for the marks which are "Palmer Bachelders * Co," and "Sterling."

Never monogrammed, this remains in superb condition. The engraving is crisp and sharp while the finish is bright and even. The bowl is free of dents, bends, or burrs, and the gold wash is largely intact.
