This 6 inch Sterling Silver spoon was made by George W. Shiebler & Company, with their mark on the back of the handle near the bowl, and is marked 'Sterling'. The gilt bowl has an image of Independence Hall, in lightly raised relief. There is some wear through the gilt, on the back of the spoon at the deepest point of the bowl. It has '1776' and 'Philadelphia' in raised letters, between the bowl and the Keystone symbol of the Commonwealth. William Penn, the enlightened founder of Pennsylvania stands at the top of the spoon. The back of Penn's Quaker garb is also detailed, with very little sign of wear. Late 19th or early 20th century. 30 grams.
