New England picturebacks are extremely rare -- none moreso than Rhode Island birds. Only Burr is known to have produced birdback spoons. The bird on this piece is in bold relief, all of its parts intact. The spoon itself has a pointed-end handle with a clearly defined reverse rib. The mono is C * H in shaded block letters, and the length is 5-1/4". The mark is E (pellet) BURR. The bowl tip has a bit of wear, otherwise the overall condition is excellent.
