It is easy to understand why Tiffany & Co. was so great when you come across flatware as amazing as this youth spoon.
The interpretation of the popular nursery rhyme depicted on this fork is stunning, not to mention great marketing.
The level of detail to both the front and back of the handle is remarkable. It is engraved on the reverse side of the bowl 'EBO'.
The handle shows Jack & Jill, with Jill clutching her bonnet as Jack falls downward along with the bucket spilling water.
A fork, knife and spoon set is in the collection of The New York Historical Society and pictured in Tiffany Silver by Carpenter (p.107).
This rare spoon is marked 'TIFFANY & CO STERLING'. It measures 6.5 long weighs 1.70 troy ounces and is in excellent antique condition.
