This ladle or spoon is in excellent condition for it's 1846-53 age! It has a lovely shell pattern bowl, beautiful swirled etch design on the handle with the light monogram of a Victorian stylized "W". The back is marked, "COIN, SMITH & CHAMBERLAIN". The spoon has a beautiful patina, no pitting, or deep scratches. I does have one pin-point ding, and one small raised area in the bowl. It measures 4" long and weighs 4.6 grams. Thank you for looking!
