This beautiful ladle is made from multiple pieces. The decorative top of the handle has an uncommon early aesthetic cattail design above a bar with three applied round balls. A curved handle is made from a heavy gauge sterling wire. Below the circular join at the base of the handle are three wires which are attached to the unusual bowl. Referred to as helmut-shaped bowls for their appearance when held upside-down, this lovely bowl has a flaring pouring spout and is also decorated on the back with the mask of classical maiden.
This wonderful antique ladle is marked 'STERLING. It measures 8 inches long, weighs 1.80 troy ounces, has never been monogrammed and is in very good condition with light wear to the original gilding.
