Here is a Masonic-themed spoon which is marked STERLING F.A. WHELAN. Both sides of the bowl, the hilt, and the tip are gold washed. It has a lot of Masonic symbolism incorporated into the design. The dates on the spoon handle (1732-1799) are the birth and death dates for George Washington, who was a Mason. (He is also a main character in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton.” We are huge fans!) We have been told that the spoon is approximately 100 years old. It measures 4-1/8", and weighs 10.9g. There is a tiny shallow scratch in the metal of the bowl, in the upper right corner of photo number 1, 1/16” long (barely noticeable), and the gold wash is worn in a few places. It could use a gentle cleaning, otherwise in very good antique condition. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
