Lovely neoclassic design spooner or slop that still shines with silver.
The piece in an inverted bell with a flared mouth and pedestal base and a slightly raised foot ring. A key fret band wraps around the belly of the exterior. One portion of the band has a reserve to engrave a monogram, but it remains blank. Delicate fern fronds extend from this reserve. Above the key fret band is a smaller repousse band. The mouth is edged with a delicate ridged ring adorned with tiny acanthus leaves.
There are no manufacturer marks or labels. The number “5659” was engraved in the base.
**PLEASE NOTE: We also have a 4-pc silver plate set for sale on Ruby Lane that has a very similar design and would coordinate with this piece. The set consists of a teapot, coffee pot, compote, and creamer.**
5 ¼” (13.3 cm) diameter x 5 7/8” (14.9 cm) tall. Weighs 13.9 oz (395 g)
The piece still has much silver and has polished up nicely. It has no dents or cracks and no deep scratches. There are a couple of small nicks on the exterior of the foot ring.
A nice neoclassical tea piece that shines brilliantly.
