RARE MANCHESTER STERLING SOUTHERN ROSE LADLE - 1933!
MANCHESTER STERLING SILVER SOUTHERN ROSE SHELL LADLE - 1933
I have put up for your consideration: One rare and very hard to find Manchester Sterling Silver Shell Shaped Cream/Gravy Ladle, in Manchester's very popular 1933 pattern of Southern Rose, which has since been discontinued. The Ladle is in very beautiful estate condition, has not been monogrammed, nor can I see any signs of monogram removal. The back of the ladle bears the Manchester Hallmark although worn it is still visible along with the word Sterling. I was told that this ladle is what is called a Cream Ladle or small Gravy Ladle. The lovely ladle is approximately 6 1/8 inches long and appears to be a little bit too long to be a Cream Ladle. This lovely shell shaped ladle has a very nice weight to it and the workmanship is beauiful. I do not see any nicks or dents in this lovely silver serving piece, but t are some light scratches consistant with the Southern Rose Ladle's age and being gently used. It would make a lovely addition to your dining table or even a beautiful gift. We have lightly hand polished the Manchester Ladle but it could use a good cleaning if so desired. Please understand that most of the items I sell are antique or vintage, so please don't expect them to be as new. I love Manchester ... read more
