This magnificent hand-wrought sterling silver soup or punch ladle with curved handle and double-spouted bowl was made by Geoffrey Blake of Old Newbury Crafters, Newburyport, Massachusetts, and bears his maker's mark of a unicorn's head alongside the ONC and Sterling marks to the back of the stem. It is a custom-made piece in their Classic English pattern with a distinctive central rib to the handle, similar to the fashion of the early 1700s, and is hand-hammered throughout, displaying the facets left by the planishing hammer on the highly polished surface. This beautiful ladle is in new or showroom condition and bears no monogram.
