Victorian Sterling JACK & JILL Baby or Child's Antique Spoon - Nursery Rhyme Reed & Barton
This awesome circa 1894 antique Victorian spoon was made for babies or children. It is made of sterling silver with a curved loop handle. The bowl has the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme and depicts Jill trying to console a crying Jack whose empty tipped over pail is nearby. The spoon measure about 3 3/8" long by 1 1/18" across the bowl. The weight is about 22.8 grams. It is signed with the Reed & Barton mark which was embossed backwards and is very light as seen. Also marked STERLING and PAT.OCT.9.1894. The bowl is a little out of oval as seen and the spoon shows age appropriate wear for a baby's spoon that was used. The sterling has a nice warm dark uneven patina (tarnish) that we have left untouched. The sterling would highlight beautifully if you choose to do that. You will treasure this!!!
