DETAILS ON THIS ITEM: This intricately constructed sterling silver melon spoon with initialed handle is striking and lovely. It is 8 1/8" in length and has some heft to it. There is a lovely script letter "L" on the white-material handle. It is completely intact, in lovely condition considering its journey and I have not dipped, polished or cleaned it in any way. It was recovered in the area of the old plantation home during relic hunting, where footings and foundations remain to this day.
