Vintage Large Ladle Brass Cup with Flat Painted Handle Southeastern Pennsylvania
Description: A beautiful vintage nice size ladle. The ladle has a handle made of flattened iron while the bowl is made of brass. The bowl is attached to the handle with what we believe are brass rivets. The handle is painted with black coloring and ends with a thin loop to hang from. The handle starts with a butterfly juncture where it meets the bowl. The butterfly shape is riveted to the bowl with two brass? (They do not stick to the magnet) rivets. The handle is flat and wide in a ribbon fashion and terminates in a circular form. The bowl has a flat circular bottom rising with flared and straight sides ending in a rolled rim. This is a great looking ladle which would make a great addition to any collection. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: Uncertain but most likely early to mid 20th century.
Origin: Southeastern Pennsylvania
Size: The ladle measures ~720" long, while the bowl is ~5 1/2" in diameter at the top, ~3 3/4" in diameter at the bottom and is ~2 3/4" deep. The piece weighs slightly over 14 ounces.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nicely done iron and brass ladle, which would be a great addition to any collection.
Condition: The ladle is in great good condition with no cracks, breaks, dings or repairs. The piece has some ware, some losses to the paint on the handle and a few light rust spots. It is clean in general but the brass bowl could use a good polishing job to bring its full beauty out. The piece is solid and beautiful and really looks good. Please see photos for additional condition information.
