Lots of Christmas items listed for the most joyful and triumphant of all seasons so please check out my other listings! This is a mix and match collection of four antique sterling silver spoons made by some of the quality American silversmiths of the time - Watson, Alvin & Baker Manchester - all pieces dating to the early 1900s. All very ornate and lovely! It is amazing how detailed they made antique sterling flatware back in the day, little works of art.
Collected from various places and assembled as a set by me - for your table! Would be perfect for a tea or coffee or a dessert service. Special little collection, Four items in all!
Alvin holly from their Floral series, circa 1900 - measures 5-5/8. Has a monogram on the handle and back of the spoon bowl.Watson reticulated Holly and Mistletoe Floral Series #4 spoon from the early 1900s, measures 5-3/4 inches. Has one ding in the bowl of the spoon. Baker Manchester Holly and Mistletoe from their early 1900s Floral Series, spoon #12, Measures 5-1/4 inches. No monogram but has a few pin dings in the bowl and a flea bite to the edge as Baker Manchester makes lighter weight pieces.
With holly leaves and art nouveau ribbons on the handle. Total weight is about 70 grams on my little digital scale. All of them have designs up the handle and some have back detail. Very ornate, detailed Holly and Mistletoe images.All are marked Sterling with the appropriate makers marks. Mentioned above, but - Please note these are all in varying used condition with some scuffs and scratching and stubborn tarnish spots areas as well as surface wear from use and polishing. They all have a few utensil scratches in the bowls and light scuffs on the back where they meet the table, and some have pin dings or nicks to the bowl, but no damage to any of the patterns on the handle. These have all been hand polished but I like to leave some patina so the high relief designs really stand out. Due to age they are not mint condition items.
I have many more holly, mistletoe and/ or Christmas items listed so please see my other auctions and create a set! I dearly love, collect, use and sell several pieces of antique American sterling silver including Tiffany and Co.
