Beautiful, hand-wrought sterling small ladle by Randahl silversmiths, c. 1930s; very much a Georg Jensen-like design; about 6-1/2" long; marked: "RANDAHL, Hand Wrought, STERLING, 268;" some light surface wear and a couple of fine scratches in the bowl; otherwise fine condition.

Julius O. Randahl was a Swedish silversmith who came to the United States in 1901.  He worked for Tiffany, Gorham and the Kalo Shop in Chicago.  In 1911, he opened his own business, The Randahl Shop in Park Ridge, Illinois, but moved to Chicago around 1915.  He was forced to close during World War I, but reopened in 1919. He sold his silver through Marshall Field's and Peacock's in Chicago.  (from Encyclopedia of American Jewelry Maunfacturers by Dorothy Rainwater)
