You know when you walk by something and it catches your eye and you know that it has been made with care and attention. That is this spoon.
It as a Porter Blanchard handmade Sterling large serving spoon. It is 9 1/2" long and weighs 139 grams alone. The bowl is 3 1/2" by 2 1/4" with a nice wide edge. You can see the hand hammering on this Arts and Crafts piece and the attention to detail. No initials or repairs with mild scratching commensurate with its age.
Porter Blanchard is part of an illustrious silver smith family with at least 5 generations of artisans. He came from the Massachusetts Arts & Crafts movement to establish that credo in California in 1923.
If you are a fan of the Arts and Crafts movement this is a artisan to collect.
