This is my great aunt's treasured spoon and she has asked me to help her remember the details about it. Thus, I am reaching out to all of you for help. Thank you in advance, Linda

A picture of the marking on the back would help a lot....and a reference to the size.
Pretty spoon but without some markings, I don't know where to begin searching for the pattern.

IS there anything on the box? It looks like a gift box and may have some info about where it came from.

I want one. Love the detailing around the bowl. (Blade? Is that for citrus fruit?)

Thank you for the responses. I will see her again later in the month and will look at the back and the box (it actually hangs on the wall).

If it's sterling it looks like Gorham's Raphael, c. 1874; probably a citrus/orange spoon but it could be a serving spoon depending on the size.

At Replacements.com they are calling this spoon a "Bright Cut Solid Pudding Spoon", by Gorham.

I found it called Raphael on the Replacements site.

Here is a link that might be useful: Raphael

But is it about 6" or about 10-12"? There's no way to tell from a photograph. Size DOES matter, LOL, when determining useage (& price)!

On the Replacements site they say it is 9" long.

The spoon on Replacements, priced at $250 is 9 inches long....but how long is the OP's spoon....that is the question.
