Howdy,
A Friend owns this Lovely Large ladle. It's not marked, although by the look and feel and fact that it has no ware marks, I think it to be Sterling. Although I'm not 100% sure. Does anyone know for sure and the pattern name. I cannot find th pattern in any of my books. Does anyone knows the value of this beauty, Any help would Very Much be Appreciated. Thanks & Have A Blessed Christmas.
Carol

Howdy,
Here is a photo of the Handle. The Ladle measures 15 3/4" long.

Hi Carol and best wishes for the holidays. Rule of thumb: no marks, no sterling. You could have it acid tested to be sure, but most likely its plated or some other metal like nickel silver.

Regards,

Uncle Vic
