I found this beautiful gravy ladle in a box lot the other day. It is 7 1/2" long. There is no hallmark or any other identification on the ladle. I assume it is coin. I have seen this pattern before. I have searched my files but to no avail. Does anyone know the maker or perhaps the pattern name. It is beautifully executed and has a gold washed bowl. I would appreciate any information. Thanks.

I have not seen that pattern before, but it is similar to some that were produced in Cincinnati. I think Duhme liked handles that had oversized top portion as this one has.
Attractive design.

Thank you for your input. I had the same thought. Before posting I searched my Cincinnati Silver book by Dehan, cover to cover, with no luck. Seems very counter productive to have a piece of silver, with such intricate hand engraving and detail, fall through the cracks without any attribution.
