This American coin silver ladle in an "Olive " pattern is marked "F. Richmond Pure Coin" (cannot trace this maker), and a maker with this name from Providence, RI seems a bit early for this piece). Still, a nice mid-19th century ladle.
Monogrammed with old English "R"
Size: Approximately 13" long.
Weight: Approximately 7.7 troy ounces)
Condition: Good used condition. Usage scratching, pitting in bowl.
Estate silver will be in used condition, but I will take care to note any defects or condition problems arising from heavy use or abuse.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
