An exceptionally nice fine antique Victorian coin silver serving spoon manufactured by early silversmith Albert Coles in the fancy Palace pattern, c. 1850 - 60.


Coles operated in New York from 1836 to 1880; eventually succeeded by George Shiebler, who continued to produce Coles' silver patterns for some years.


This size spoon was used to serve preserves, jams, jellies, pudding, sugar, etc.


Is it in extremely nice antique estate condition with no dings, dents, repairs or alterations.  Bowl edges are very good.  Handle has not been bent.  Pattern remains quite detailed.  Rather amazingly the bowl still retains visible, quite bright and shiny gold gilt vermeil, which appears somewhat lighter in images than actual.
Additionally, this fine old server has never been monogrammed, which is rather unusual and rare to find, as a great amount of period silver was personalized.


A very fine, excellent condition, un-monogrammed antique serving piece manufactured by a notable early silversmith.  While neither coin or sterling silver Coles flatware examples are especially plentiful, the Palace pattern is certainly one of the more rare and hard to find.
