Measuring 5 5/8" long and weighing 1.6 T. oz., this serving, aka table, spoon is an early example of Whiting's 1905 "Violet" pattern, marked with the company "lion" logo, "Sterling," "Pat. App. For," an Old English "O," and an "M," which might be a weight designation (medium).

An Art Nouveau design, this features violet blossoms on the end and midpoint of the handle, along with trailing, sinuous, stems the full length of the handle, ending with a leaf detail at the join with the handle.

There is an Old English "S" engraved on the handle front.

This remains in flawless estate condition. It is free of polishing wear, or dents, bends, or tip wear in the bowl. The finish shows a mirror like, hand polished only, surface.
