This wonderful sterling teaspoon is in the striking, deeply embossed and highly sought after Dominick & Haff floral 'Rococo' pattern which was designed by Gilbert L, Crowell, Jr in 1888. The floral design on the handle is still very crisp and clear and the patina is lovely. The back of the spoon is decorated with raised edges. It is not monogrammed.
It measures 6" long, weighs a heavy 29 g and has an substantial 'feel' in the hand. Although difficult to see in the photos, as the stem is so slender, the spoon is marked with Pat.D 88, the Dominick & Haff mark of a stamped rectangle, a circle and a diamond shape followed by Sterling. This wonderful piece was retailed by Theodore B. Starr who was a well known silversmith of the time and had a shop on Fifth Avenue in New York.
This spoon is in very good condition considering its age of at least 120 years, with the usual micro scratches. There is one miniscule 'nibble' on the outside right of the bowl (less than 1mm - please see photo 3) and some very slight wear to the tip of the bowl but no dents or other damage whatsoever.
This is a truly elegant piece of old silver.
