Not only is it supposed to be healthy to eat lots of berries but with this old solid sterling silver serving spoon, it becomes a very beautiful exercise in good living.
This spoon is big and heavy...9 inches long by 2 1/2 inches across the bowl. It scoops a lot of berries (or fruit salad). It already has raised strawberries impressed into it. The top of the handle is also a cluster of berries with the vine winding down in an open stem design. This design is the Strawberry Vine pattern which Tiffany & Co. originated in 1875. This spoon is marked STERLING with no reference to Tiffany. This design is based on the Tiffany design and is from the early 1900s.
The spoon weighs 140 grams or 4 troy ounces...quite hefty and a substantial serving piece.
The spoon is marked STERLING and was also acid-tested for solid silver. Shows natural wear patina though nothing notable. NO monograms. Excellent vintage condition.
