A 6" long, .9 T. oz., item, this sugar spoon is stamped "C C S" on the reverse, for the maker, Charles C. Shaver, who worked in Utica, New York, during the second half of the 19th century.

Made of coin silver, this dates c. 1865.

The pattern is described as "ornamental" in Rainwater's "Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers." The design appears on both sides of the handle and features anthemion leaves, along with other period detailing.

The bowl is a shell form in the manner of other New York silver, with smooth sides and a double scalloped front edge.

It is inscribed "W.B.C." in script set sideways on the handle.

In very fine condition, it retains full clarity of detail and has a bright finish. The bowl is free of dents, nicks, bends, or cracks.
