This large antique coin silver serving spoon was made by Farrington & Hunnewell, Boston, between 1838 and 1885, possibly in the 1860s. The terminal is decorated on both obverse and reverse with leaves and flowers, with one open flower at the upturned tip of the handle and one closed bud on the back. An unusual detail is the single flower decorating the heel. The terminal is monogrammed with "B" in a graceful script. The stem is threaded with no shoulders. This substantial piece weighs 2.1 ounces (58 grams) and is approximately 8¼ inches in length. It is in excellent condition.
