This adorable little sterling silver powder ladle in its original box dates from the 1930s.
It was patented in 1936 by Charles Grabhorn of Hoboken, New Jersey. I was able to locate the original patent documents thanks to the number on the original paper inside the box! I will include a print out of these documents with your purchase.
