This is such an unusual sterling silver serving spoon! The handle features a unique or leaf feather design on top of a twist. Even thought there is no maker's mark, which is common with early silver, this appears to be in the Leaf pattern by Gorham, ca 1891. The bowl is melon shaped. This spoon measures 7 3/4" long, is marked sterling with no maker's mark, and in extremely good, unmonogrammed condition.
