$32.00

A 5 5/8" long, .7 T. oz., item, this spoon was made by A.F. Towle (later Lunt), as indicated by the "TS" emblem imprinted on the reverse, along with the word "Sterling."

Based on the 1899 "Wentworth" pattern, it includes an image of a plump, completely baby-like, winged cherub draped in a garland of roses, all set in very high relief that rises off the handle sculptural-like.

The figure is surrounded by beading, below which are more fully developed rose blossoms.

The handle backside is plain save for a bit of scroll work at the tip margin, along with two poseys and an engraved Old English "R" monogram.

It is in choice condition, retaining all the fine detail of the figure, such as the curls in the cherub's hair, feathers on the wings, and detailed facial features. The bowl is without bends, nicks, burrs, or tip wear, while the piece overall has a warm, bright finish.
