This amazing sterling spoon by Jacob Karr of Washington, D.C. (1857-1896) is in excellent condition. The figural handled spoon is what we consider to day Uncle Sam with top hat and stars, long tail coat, striped pants etc. So beautifully done. Below is a little more understanding of the origination of Uncle Sam. The reverse of the handle also shows the figural Uncle Sam. The bowl is monogrammed with a fancy TRA. Stamped sterling and J. Karr. the spoon is 4 1/4" in length and weighs 12.7 grams. A great collectors piece.
