This 3 7/8" long, scant weight, coffee or demitasse spoon is hallmarked for sterling silver, date of manufacture 1898-99, Birmingham England, and maker John Grinsell & Sons (JG&S).

The firm had showrooms in Birmingham, England, and Glasgow, Scotland, the latter of which may relate to the "Thistle" that sits on the end of the twisted handle on this.

With leaves and a ball formed from silver, the actual blossom is shaped from a piece of purple amethyst colored glass.

The bowl is finished with a bright gold wash on the interior.

In pristine condition, this is without wear, damage, or imperfections.
