American sterling silver mustard ladle in the Florentine pattern by John R. Wendt of New York City, c.1870.
This original ladle is 5" long and weighs 16 grams.
This extremely scarce mustard ladle was retailed by J. E. Caldwell of Philadelphia.
The soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.
The excellent original condition and clear, crisp detail, with no monograms, removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
