Whiting sterling silver baby face design spoon heavy scroll handle ornate
Antique heavy gauge sterling silver spoon by Whiting in the baby face design. The spoon weighs 51.1 grams. It measures 5 3/4" long. The bowl measures 2" x 1 3/8". The bowl has a ghostly baby face in repousse work. The handle has a heavy ornate scroll design. Where the bowl meets with handle there are tentacles that look like roots when you look from the handle down but look like hair when you look from the baby face bowl up, very Art Nouveau. The handle is marked with the W and lion mark of Whiting from New York and sterling. The reverse of the bowl is engraved with a Gothic letter D. I have not polished this piece, otherwise condition is good.
