Here is a lovely vintage sterling silver pierced olive spoon. The bowl of the spoon has a gold wash and is pierced and etched with a lovely design. The graceful handle features flowers, scrolls and bead work.
This spoon is marked on the back of the handle: "925, STERLING,1000". It is also marked: "PAT. APL'D FOR". There are no maker's marks so we have not been able to identify the maker or the pattern. Nevertheless, the spoon is very nice and in very good condition. We believe it to be quite old, dating to the late 19th century.
The spoon measures approximately 6-5/8" long. The bowl of the spoon measures approximately 2"L x 1"W. The weight is 15.6 grams or 0.55 ounces. A beautiful and useful piece for your holiday table!
