American sterling silver berry scoop in an extraordinary engraved Rose pattern, retailed by McCarty & Hurlbert Philadelphia, 1876-1887.
It is likely that the retailer did the wonderful engraving on the handle and bowl, both of which have a matte finish, with the bowl having wide shoulders with foliate engravings.
Weighing 84 grams or 2.7 ozs. Troy, this special scoop is 9 3/8" long and has a period script monogram: L on the front of the handle. The back of the handle has a reverse tipt design.
Monogrammed as described above, the soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.
The excellent original condition and clear detail, with no removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
