This big beautiful antique sterling silver serving spoon makes us hungry. Just looking at the wide pierced scalloped bowl congers up visions of pastries, tomato mozzarella caprese salad, mounds of mac 'n cheese, scoops of appetizers, and so much more. (One online site for these sterling pieces labels this a 'Tomato Server'...to which we say, it's a start. But why stop with tomatoes?)
This was made by R. Blackinton & Co. of Attleboro, Ma. circa 1900. The pattern is called Nautilus. The edges of the bowl are scalloped with feathery accents. The pierced bowl measures 3 inches across. The length of the spoon is 7 3/4 inches. The spoon weighs 47 grams.
The handle is decorated with the Nautilus design at the top and lots of curvy scrollwork on the way down.
The back is marked with the BLACKINTON ~ B ~ sword hallmark and STERLING. Normal signs of surface wear but nothing notable and best of all, there's NO MONOGRAM.
Turn on the oven. The holidays are coming. Everyone is hungry. This old spoon is ready for action!
