Rectangular in section, handle is very thing at wavy end which is bent forward. Bowl has molded and rounded drop in grooved rattail flanked by leafy scroll design - apparently the Dummer stamp most common in survival. The spoon’s position in the swage gives it a longer drop and causes the first scroll to be slightly further from the edge than on other spoons.
