HOLD

Solid silver, this gravy ladle is large scale, measuring 6 1/2" long overall, with a 2 1/2" by 2" by 3/4" deep bowl, and weighs just under 2.6 T. oz.

It is marked "Sterling" and "Shreve & Co.," for the San Francisco firm known for its Arts & Crafts style silver, which the "Norman" pattern on this exemplifies.

Introduced in 1909, "Norman" is reminiscent of Shreve's "XIVth Century," and was offered in a plain version and with a hammered surface, as on this.

The upturned handle front is engraved with a fancy script "E" monogram.

The bowl has a slightly splayed lip on either side, creating subtle pouring spouts.

In excellent estate condition, it has a bright finish that is absent polishing wear, and is without marring or damage. There are light surface scratches in the interior of bowl, consistent with normal use.
