A vintage mid century modernist pair of salad servers in sterling silver and exotic wood by William Spratling. One is an open slotted spoon/fork and the other is a large serving spoon.
They each measure 12 1/4" long and 2 14" across the bowls. Marked with the conjoined 'WS', Taxco and 925. These were the marks used between 1933-40, the first design period.
Made of thick lightly hammered sterling with three small balls near where the silver is attached to the wood.
There is some tarnish and minor nicks to the silver. The wood handle on the spoon has a loss to the corner, about 3/4" long. There are also some minor nicks to the edges of the wood. There is a tiny drop of glue residue near where the handle is attached on the fork.
Classic early Spratling design. Fine example.
