We are pleased to offer a wonderful antique silver pierced ladle. It is an unusual piece both in size and design. We have not been able to determine its intended use with certainty. It may have been a sifter or scoop that required the pierced bowl.

The ladle is well marked. The hallmarks on the back of the handle are: "n" (date mark for 1872), "Minerva head in helmet - number on helmet is unreadable" (duty mark to indicate assay office), "right facing lion passant" (silver content = .833 silver purity), and "square with letters" (maker's mark).

The ladle has a graceful, high arched handle with hand-chased or embossed design. The bowl is egg shaped bowl and is pierced with many small 4 pointed stars. The ladle measures approximately 6-1/2" long. The bowl portion of the piece measures approximately 2-1/2" L x 1`-7/8" W. It weighs 36.4 grams or 1.280 ounces.

If you enjoy owning rare and unusual pieces of silver, this one certainly meets that description. It is in very good condition.
