This Whiting Lily of the Valley spoon has the characteristics of a cream soup spoon, although the length is just over 5 inches, rather than the 6 inches that the only source I can find lists. This spoon is slightly longer than a bouillon spoon. The handle is wider than a bouillon spoon, and the stems at the base of the handle of the spoon go all the way down to the bowl, unlike the bouillon spoon where the stems terminate before the bowl begins. This spoon is also heavier than the bouillon spoon. If you compare the backs of the spoons, the bouillon spoon has ridges at each side of the spoon, whereas this spoon is flat. The spoon is just over 5 inches long and the bowl is 1.5 inches in diameter. The handle is one-half inch wide at the widest point. The back of this spoon is engraved with the date "09". There is the word "sterling", the maker's mark for Whiting, and the name "Sol Marks". Sol Marks was a fine jeweler in Lawrence, Kansas. Sol Marks opened the establishment in 1880. It is the 14th oldest independent jewelry store in the nation. The spoon shows light use marks on the back.
