Daniel Low of Salem, Massachusetts marketed two "witch" themed lines of souvenir silver items, one made by Durgin and one by Gorham respectively, that are legendary among collectors.

This 5 3/8" long, .6 T. oz., spoon is also a Salem souvenir piece, but marked "Inman" for the J.T. Inman & Co., of Attleboro, Massachusetts, with a history that traces to at least 1896 (Rainwater, Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers).

While a witch features prominently in a reticulated portraiture on the handle end, the themes extend to the "House of Seven Gables," and Salem itself, along with its seal that notes the date of its founding in 1626 and incorporation as a city in 1836.

The backside is plain save for the word "Inman" and "Sterling."

In mint condition, this shows neither wear nor damage and has a bright overall finish.
