Here is a large and beautiful berry spoon or serving spoon in the famous Lily of the Valley pattern created by Whiting in the 1880's. It was instantly popular and has remained so ever since. The bowl of the spoon has scalloping at the front and a more complex pattern of scallops at the back of the spoon. There is an etching of the lily of the valley plant in the bowl and also etching to form a design around the ridged section of the bowl. Because the handle is wider than most, the lily of the valley stem, wrapped in its leaf, is especially detailed. On the back of the handle we see "23, sterling" and the Whiting logo. The retailer is also indicated, "A. Stowell & Co.". Alexander Stowell was an upscale jeweler in nineteenth century Boston. The spoon is 8 3/8 inches long and 2.5 inches at the widest point. The weight is 90.4 grams or 3.19 ounces, quite a heavy piece.
