The spooner has a realistically modeled figure of a mermaid. It is hallmarked on the bottom with a maker's mark and a number 13 within a triangular hallmark. This second hallmark was used in Germany in early 19th century to denote 80% silver purity. The item has some wear & tear scratches and tarnish spots, but there are no damages. Beautiful item! Width between handles: 8.5 inches, height up the handle: 6.5 inches, width (base): 3.5 inches, weight: 8.7 oz.
