Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Ladle by Dominick & Haff - Retailed by Bailey Banks & Biddle
In the new King pattern (C.1898) by Dominick & Haff may I offer this hefty gravy or sauce ladle with scalloped shell bowl retailed by Bailey Banks & Biddle. There is a monogram of P at the top of the handle. No monogram on the reverse.
Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time (as well as some dust particles showing in my pictures). The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos, the main polish I leave to the new owner. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver
Hallmarks: Sterling (Dominick & Haff Hallmark) Bailey Banks & Biddle Co
Size: Length on a straight line is 7-1/2"; width at the bowl is 2-9/16".
Weight: 118 Grams
Final Comments: The replacement site does not have one in stock - the auction site has a few at $259.00 (but none with a Bailey Banks mark).
NOTE: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items as possible. When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
