Vintage Art Deco Mother of Pearl Sterling Ferrule Stainless Steel Bowl Gravy Ladle Sauce Ladle
Dating to around the 1930s or so, may I offer this mother of pearl topped stainless steel bottom gravy ladle that features a plain sterling ferrule joining the MOP to the steel. No monogram.
Condition: No stains to the MOP. Re the steel, well, being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. 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 and Stainless Steel
Hallmarks: Sterling on the ferrule only.
Size: Length on a straight line is 6-3/8"; width at the bowl is 2-1/16".
Final Comments: Adorable and priced to find a new home quickly!
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.
Buy with Confidence. Robins Nest Midwest has the highest rating a shop can attain on RL.
