Weighs about 45 grams on my little digital scale so very sturdy hand feel. It measures 1 1/8 inches in length. Marked Sterling to the right of the handle and you can see half of the Shiebler hallmark to the left of the handle.
It is faint but it is there. Also has the start of the pattern number, with only the number 2 visible, which was originally 278.
Please note that due to age this is in estate condition with some areas of surface scratches in the spoon bowl and utensil nicks. There a muddy area to the silver work where the handle meets the strainer bowl. It looks like the handle may have broken and been resoldered or repaired. There are a few spots in that area and possibly some pitting.This is visible from the outside of the lily pad bowl and the inside on both sides where the handle meets the strainer bowl. Some nicks and impressions to the handle. Some utensil nicks and scratches to the underside of the strainer bowl. A few areas of stubborn tarnish on the inside in the hard to polish areas.
All over surface wear from use and polish over the years. I have many more antique sterling pieces listed so please see my other auctions and create a set!
