This small-size delicate Sterling Silver citrus/orange spoon is a souvenir of ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida probably purchased there by a tourist around 120 years ago. It was made by the Whiting Manufacturing Co, and has their logo ("W" and a lion)stamped on the back- though very small and hard to see. The engraved design on the handle (looks hand-done) is similar to a Whiting flatware pattern released in 1890, and in general this type of engraved handle was used by many manufacturers in the early to mid 1890's. The unusual script style of lettering of the city name in the bowl is also typical of the 1890s. In this case the letters are raised, and the name "ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla." was chemically etched into the bowl- and nicely done though a bit hard to read the snaky Art Nouveau font letters.
The spoon is small, around 4- 3/4" long. It is a sharply-pointed spoon, making it a citrus (grapefruit, orange) spoon which first appeared in the 1890s with the sudden growth of Florida's citrus-raising industry. Usually citrus spoons are the length of teaspoons; this one may have been for smaller, delicate oranges! The word "Sterling" is also stamped on the back of the handle. It is in excellent condition; I have not cleaned it. It could use a bit of polishing but that is up to you. A very decorative piece and not commonly seen.
