Serving Spoons
Serving Spoons  
I have these 2 Serving Spoons that I am trying to determine their value. The marking on the back says Wallace Sterling. I cannot find the age of these pieces, but I can only say I have have them for over 30 years. They were given to me after my Grandmother had passed away. If there is any information you can give me I would appreciate it.

Thank you

Answer
Hello.

These look like they are in the Grande Baroque pattern. It was introduced by Wallace in 1941.

This is a pattern that sells often on eBay. Grande Baroque is a popular pattern, resulting in sales of many different types of pieces in the pattern. Recently, several serving spoons, 8 3/4 inches long, sold in the range of $85 to $92. That's a reasonable market price range. Here's an example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sterling-Silver-serving-spoon-Grande-Baroque-by-Wallace- .

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Jim
