this spoon is driving me crazy.
i cant find anything about this spoon. i found it in a abandoned house.
Front: smooth bowl with no art, goes up to something like roots with a leaf pointing to the top. lines going to top of spoon, looks like some type of pillar. in the middle is a flower with leafs around it. top is flower reef hanging towards the bowl of spoon. 3 different flowers on top of pillar.
Back: on back of bowl is alot of flowers wraping from the middle going up (sharp detail). crown in middle of in with 925/1000 (lower part of crown warn off. Roots again, in middle is a very designed J. goes to boxed [>Sterling<][>PAT. 1898<] 4 leafs stretching up goes smooth with trim around the edge. Engraved D K W. 2 branches hanging on side with ribbon in middle with faded LT. top has flowers around top with rose at top.
personaly, i was suprised on how sharp alot of the artwork is. most spoons before the 1900's are warn down or faded.
I would like to know anything about this creative piece. history, where it could have been made, the value (not selling, would like to know true value) what DKW means.
I would GREATLY apreciate any information.
