Libbey and Gorham Neola Ladle – SOLD
This ladle was cut and signed by Libbey in their wonderful Neola pattern. I believe the Neola pattern to be on of Libbey’s best and I can only imagine a punch bowl in this pattern! Regardless of whether or not you have the matching punch bowl, this ladle holds its own or could be paired with another beautiful punch bowl. It’s a step above most ladles in that it has Gorham silver (most ladles are siver plated).
The Neola pattern lays out wonderfully on the ladle with two large hobstars on the top and bottom of hte piece. These hobstars are divided by the quintessential feathering that Neola is so well known for. The tip of the ladle is also topped with an 8-point hobstar. The silver portion of the ladle is quite nice as well – with a shell with a spout for the bowl portion.
The ladle is in good condition and measures 13 3/8″ long and 2 3/4″ tall. Non generic ladles with silver rarely come along and when they do, the prices soar. This is an opportunity for one of the better ladles at a very reasonable price.
