Dating from 1850, "Le Cordon" was a pattern produced by Whiting, although the design did not originate with that company.

This 13 3/4", 4.9 T. oz., punch ladle is an early, pre-Whiting, example. It is marked "Ball, Black & Co." for the prominent New York City firm, and "Sterling."

The pattern is a knot design, ending with a bow on the handle front. The pattern repeats on the handle reverse, with the inclusion of a shield reserve set below the knot. The bow is replaced with trailing ends.

A rare form and fully original, this is a true punch ladle with a 4 1/2" wide, 2 5/8" back to front, and 1 1/2" deep, double-spouted bowl.

Never monogrammed, this is in outstanding condition. There is no polishing wear, nor bends, dents, or scuffs to either the handle or the bowl. The finish is bright and even.
