While his early working years were spent in Hartford, Connecticut, George Eno is identified as a Philadelphia silversmith where he spent most of his life.

This large, 7 3/4" long, weighty at 2.1 T. oz., gravy ladle is stamped "Eno & Co." and "Coin," dating it 1854-60, prior to Eno's 1860-70 partnership with George Bechtel.

The narrow handle is hexagonal with two square block elements. The end is broad and spreads out into a fan or anthemion form. This is finely engraved and outlined in wriggle work.

The open area in the center of the engraving has a delicate, feathered script "EJM" monogram.

The lower portion of the handle at the place where it joins the 2 7/8" by 2 1/4" by 5/8" deep, scallop rim bowl is also engraved.

The backside of the piece is plain save for the marks.

It is in excellent condition. It is free of polishing wear, and the finish is brilliant. All other aspects of the piece are flawless.
