It is well known that the Chantilly that we are all familiar with is in fact the New Chantilly. For a short earlier period, Chantilly bowl shapes were much more decorative and intricate. This "Old Chantilly" is still around and often can be bought for the price of the New Chantilly.

We recently purchased the spoon below. The handle is classic Newcastle but the bowl is not. We have a large collection of Newcastle and have only seen one odd bowl; it was clearly made up with a crude solder joint.
This spoon is one piece with no joint. Where one would hope to see the Gorham marks, there are three slightly raised areas with no detail. In the center back of the handle there is a clear sharp "SHREVE & CO". Was there an early Newcastle and is this an example?
