This particular style of spoon is called a shell spoon because of the shape of the bowl. I have also see this style of spoon referred to as a sugar spoon.
The spoon dates to the mid 1800's and is in good vintage condition except for three small dimples in the bowl. The pattern design shows age wear, however the images are very clear.
The images are unusual: at the top of the handle is ram's head with horns which curl front to back, on the middle of the handle is a devil's head topped by a pineapple with ivy leaves.
No monogram. No hallmarks. No maker's mark. The marks on the back of the bowl have the word "sterling" and "pat. 1862" (though the date is somewhat illegible.)
I have found only two companies who manufactured this design: Tiffany and Whiting-Hebbard. I believe that the name of the pattern GRECIAN
