American Coin Silver engraved soup ladle in its original custom made fitted box. Ladle is engraved with fancy 3-letter monogram "M S P". Both the handle and the bowl are decorated with an engraved "Brite-Cut" design with initials "M S P" near the top of the handle. This ladle has more elaborate decoration than most Coin Silver items and was probably a commissioned piece for a wealthy, prominent family as it has a custom made fitted velvet and satin lined leather case with an embossed decorated top. Marked "Coin" on back of handle.
Measures: 11 3/4" long with the bowl being 2 3/4" wide. Weighs 115 grams (not including case).
Condition: Ladle is in very good to excellent Estate condition with no significant dents or dings and reflecting only minimal signs of normal wear. There is a very faint no-harm impression in the center back of the bowl that is hardly noticeable on the top/front. The fitted case is not in very good condition as the leather is considerably worn and the top and bottom sections of the case are not attached so the case will not stay closed.
