Small sauce ladle, made by Whiting, circa 1950. Just the right size for side sauces and condiments - the ladle handle is curved to fit on the edge of a bowl or jar, without falling in.
The ladle is around 5" long, and the bowl is 1 1/2" across. It weighs 18 grams. The Whiting Sterling logo can be seen on the back of the handle.
I have a mid-century sterling olive server cocktail set that has a similar pierced handle. This is shown in the last photo - if you choose to purchase both, there will be no additional shipping.
