This is a pretty egg spoon in what I would call a beaded oval pattern. It is marked W.G.Jr. and that may stand for William Gale Jr. He used the mark William Gale Jr. in 1866, but since this is a small object may have had a shorter mark made.

Egg spoons have always fascinated me as they always seem to turn up in old movies at a reflective turning point in the movie where the head of the household makes a grand announcement.

This one was found in a pile of silver ware and after much looking we finally found six of them.

Until I saw these I did not realize that son of William Gale every had his own business. I always assumed he was always with his father.
