This old sterling spoon is small but has a lot going for it with nice detail of the historical rolling chair of Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The top of the handle features a sail boat upon the ocean waves. Below the waves is a large seashell and below the shell is a lighthouse. The edges of the handle have a rope like design and at the base of the handle is an anchor. The inside of the bowl has a nice, detailed image of a decorative rolling chair. This mode of transportation was introduced to the A.C. boardwalk in the 1880’s. Inside the chair there appears to two people, they might both be women. A dapper gentleman is pushing the cart along the boardwalk. The top edge of the spoon reads; “Rolling Chair” and the bottom edge reads; “Atlantic City, N.J.”. The back of the handle is without design.
It is marked with the word Sterling as well what appears to be a crown, W , and a lion facing left which would be the mark for the Watson Company of Massachusetts.
It measures about 3 37/8” long and is in very nice condition with minimal wear. There is a small dent on the back side of the bowl.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
