Great detailed pattern here, with Apples done in an Art Nouveau style. Whiting Newell and Company, sometimes known as Mechanic's Silver, made some wonderful souvenir spoons and a few patterns like this elaborate and unidentified one. At over 38.5 grams, the piece has great weight for a teaspoon, and it measures about 6 inches in length. The back of the spoon is engraved Amelia, the name of the original turn of the century spoon collector. I have some other great Art Nouveau pieces from this spoon collection listed. The spoon is marked Sterling and has a pennant flag manufacturer's mark. There is some controversy over whether the letter is an H or an M. I support the theory that it is an M, sometimes poorly stamped, and was used by Mechanic's, a subsidiary of Whiting Newell & Sons. Early 20th century.
