This charming antique sterling silver baby spoon was made by Tiffany & Co and features the image of Mother Goose in a cartouche which is located on the top of the handle. The nursery rhyme character is depicted in relief seated atop a large goose with its wings spread in flight. The spoon has an ergonomic design with a curved handle to make it easier for baby to grasp while eating.
The silver spoon is in very good original condition with no removals or repairs. As an antique, the piece shows signs of age consisting of light scratches and nicks related to use which do not detract from its appearance and are mentioned for accuracy. The spoon has been lightly polished and exhibits a mellow patina acquired over the course of many years.
The back of the spoon is fully hallmarked reading "TIFFANY & CO STERLING" along with an "M" designating company Artistic Director John C. Moore II, pattern number "21976" and a figural star. The spoon measures 4" long and is 1.25" wide at the bowl. The top edge of the handle stands 1.5" from the surface of the surface on which it is displayed. The piece weighs in at 39 grams.
This highly collectible silver spoon displays beautifully and would make a perfect baby gift. An adorable antique find!
