Weidlich Sterling Spoon Co. "Little Dutch Milk Maid" Baby Spoon - Circa 1920Weidlich Sterling Spoon Co. "Little Dutch Milk Maid" Baby Spoon - Circa 1920

This baby spoon is so sweet and has such wonderful detail. Note all the accent lines giving texture and movement to all of the aspects of the motif. There are even soft clouds behind the windmill blades. Through the middle of the handle you find raised lettering giving us the title of our spoon. At the base of the handle you find the same stylized idea of soft curving curlicues that are found at the base of the design frame for our "Little Maid". The backside of the handle is un-patterned sterling with just a raised curved rim to frame an area for presentation. The backside of the handle has never been engraved. The spoon has no rips, dents, holes, deep scratches, abrasions or repairs. On the plain, un-patterned surfaces of the spoon you find the normal faint surface only scratches from use and old style cleaners. The bowl is well rounded with a very nicely formed rim. There are no nasty rim spots to hurt a baby's mouth. The Weidlich Co. appears to have only been in business for approximately 40 years. They only made flatware and souvenir spoons so their designs had to have been pretty special. I think this delightful spoon is a great testament to their design department. The spoon measures 4 1/4" long with the design motif containing the "Maid" being 1 1/4" tall by 9/16" at widest point. Out there in the baby item collectable world there may be a fork, knife and pusher to match our girl.
