I have not been able to ascertain the maker of this lovely spoon, it is stamped on back of neck: 'R.W. & Co.' 'Sterling' 'L.D.A.' It could be R. Wallace & Sons, but I have not found an example of this particular mark, hence the wide date range.
The handle features a scroll and fleur de lis pattern. The bowl has two cats on a fence, above the embossed 'KILL MTS', with a crescent moon and stars above the scene. No dents or bends, it measures 5 1/4" long, bowl is 1 1/16" wide. Picture of bowl edited for color and glare, to show detail.
This beautiful vintage spoon is in wonderful condition, and would be an excellent addition to your cat OR spoon collection! I was collecting cat spoons, of all types, but have decided to let them go, so see my other Cat Spoon listings, if you are interested. I only do a light polish with a cloth, rather than paste, on all my silver and metals. You may polish them further, if purchased.
