I am looking for a pattern name for this spoon. It is cast and has a repair on the handle.

Thank you in advance.

I don't believe this pattern has a name. If I'm not mistaken, your piece is a child's spoon, which looks like an oversize teaspoon, but is acutally a child-size tablespoon. I have seen this piece before, and I am confident that it was made to match a child's bowl, plate, etc. As such, this is likely the only flatware type made with this pattern.

Hope this helps!

What you are saying certainly makes sense. It seems to me that a pattern like this should show somewhere otherwise. It is a fanciful spoon with the curls in the bowl.
The length of this spoon is six and one-eighth inches so you're correct about the size too. Thank you!

P. S. I was about to post a little better image, but apparently this one is just passable.
