This lovely sterling silver sugar shell is the "Poppy" pattern introduced in 1904. A gorgeous pattern on both the front and back with raised poppy flowers on handle and shell shaped bowl of the spoon. Stamped "Sterling" and the Manchester hallmark of an "M" within a shield flanked by two birds. The sugar shell measures 5 3/8" in length and weighs .510 ounce. Lovely piece.
