This is a lovely - and hefty - American Sterling Serving spoon. It was made between 1873 and 1880 by A.F. Towle & Son of Newburyport, Massachusetts. It is a very traditional (colonial) Fiddle & Thread shaped handle and bowl and is nicely hallmarked on the back. There is a letter "M" monogram on the front handle.With the exception of some surface scratching, the spoon is in very good condition. It measures 8 inches long and is 1 5/8 at the widest part of the bowl. It weighs 59.8 grams Sterling.
I use my silver serving spoons EVERY DAY!!!! The more they are used, the nicer the shine. I use them to serve fruit, veggies, mashed potatoes, desserts, grains - you name it!! Tasha Tudor once said, "What is the good in keeping your beautiful things locked away? Use them every day and be happy."
