Whiting Manufacturing Co Sterling Silver Teaspoon - Hyperion Pattern
First produced in 1888 may I offer this silver teaspoon by the Whiting Manufacturing Company in the Hyperion pattern. There is no monogram back or front. The spoon bears the retailers mark of Mermod Jaccard of St Louis, Mo.
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: Whiting Mark, Sterling, Mermod Jaccard Co
Size: Length on a straight line is 5-3/4"; width at the bowl is 1-1/4".
Weight: 22 grams
Final Comments: The replacement place wants $55.99 while the auction site wants $30 (when you can find one).
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.
