This is a gorgeous estate sterling ladle in the coveted Bridal Rose pattern by Alvin. The ladle measures 6 3/8" long and 2 5/" across the bowl. It weighs 2 5/8 ounces (73 grams). See photos for hallmarks on the back side.If this isn't your initial, make up a story about inheriting it from your Aunt Alice! This will come to you polished and ready for your table. I have several other Bridal Rose pieces listed as well as any rare and unusual sterling pieces.
