Antique American Silver Soup Ladle

Sold
  • Connecticut, circa 1910 by International Silver Company
  • Dimensions: 11 inches in length

Antique Silver Soup Ladles were not in use until the mid-18th century. By this time, the Silver Soup Tureen had become quite popular and a companion was needed to be used with this article. A long silver serving utensil was needed which would have a big enough bowl to efficiently fill a soup bowl was the obvious complement to the Silver Soup Tureen. Therefore, soup ladles became quite popular.

An elaborate and boldly embossed Antique American Silver Soup Ladle in the ‘Frontenac’ pattern. This pattern was introduced in 1903. Beautiful flowers in the design help give this a very Art Nouveau look. The ladle features stunning detail work of flowers, vines and swirls resonating throughout the curved handle and flows into the bowl. Crisp detail work is featured on the front and the back of the handle.

Even though this pattern was discontinued in 1974, the ‘Frontenac’ pattern is still very desirable and we are quite pleased to have acquired this piece.
