This antique spoon c. 1893 is in excellent condition for its age. The bowl has inscribed Mary 1893 in it with the old style engraving. The twist handle leads to the Mother of Pearl handle that has a small cross just below it. The Mother of Pearl is in perfect shape with no cracks. Quite a unique spoon. Stamped sterling on the back of the bowl, this spoon is 4 3/8" long and weighs a total weight of 9.4 grams. Great shape for a spoon that is 124 years old. A perfect gift for a friend named Mary!!
