This beautiful little spoon is marked on the reverse in a cartouche "W G & S," which is an early mark for the silversmith William Gale & Son of New York City. The pattern name for this spoon is Jenny Lind, designed by Albert Coles c. 1850. The spoon is beautifully monogrammed, but only on the reverse, with the initials "E.B." There is a very tiny crimp in the edge of the bowl -- insignificant, but likely it can be easily fixed.

I am calling this a baby spoon, though it was probably meant to be used as a salt spoon or mustard spoon. Perhaps even a demitasse spoon. Still, I think it would make an excellent baby's first spoon. This small William Gale & Son spoon measures just under 4" in length and weighs 11 grams. There is some wear to the raised areas of the spoon owing to age; nevertheless, it is a superb piece of silver in excellent condition.

This truly is a piece of American history and, also, a very pretty spoon. Why not give your baby a sense of heritage and history while eating in style?
