12 Antique Dutch Solid Silver Tea Or Coffee Spoons In Original Box Circa 1890 For Sale
Superb Boxed Set of 12 Antique Dutch Solid Silver Tea or Coffee Spoons circa 1890
Each Antique Tea Spoon measuresapproximately 4 5/8 inches or 117 mm across its length from the top of its handle to the front rim of its bowl by 3/8 of an inch or 9 mm across the widest part of its upper handle from side to side and it is 7/8 of an inch or 22 mm across the widest part of its bowl.
The presentation case or box measures approximately 11 3/8 inches or 290 mm across its length from side to side by 5 3/4 inches or 146 mm across its width from the hinges to the front catches and it stands 1 1/2 inches or 38 mm tall to the top of its lid when closed.
All 12 spoons are made from solid silver and they have a combined silver weight of 103.8 grams, each spoon has a raised relief rope twist decorated handle that has a ball shaped finial on its end and it has an oval shaped bowl, the spoons are complete with their original black leather bound hinged internally fitted presentation case or box that has two hinged catches on the front with the original Dutch retailers mark J.P van den Berg, Kampten in gold within its lid, the spoons have Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram all as photographed below and each one has been impressed on its lower handle above the bowl with a Dutch small item 833 standard solid silver sword mark that was used from 1814 to 1905 until this style of sword mark was changed, they also have the Dutch silversmith or makers marks and I estimate that this set of 12 spoons were made circa 1880 - 1900.
Thecondition is used and near Mint for their age.
The Spoons haveNoDents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holes and No Repairs that I can find, the spoons are straight, the decoration and definition is crisp,the Dutch silver and makers marks are stilllegible although as the spoons are used antiques the outer body of the box is scuffed and one of the catches does not work, the spoons have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patinaof age that is to beexpected and a gentle clean would not go amiss. PersonallyI think that this boxed set of 12 antique Dutch tea or coffee spoons can still be used today and that they would make a superb addition to any cabinet collection, I also think that they look absolutely fantastic consideringthat they are around 125 or so years old.
This Superb Quality Boxed Set of 12 Antique Dutch Solid Silver Tea or Coffee Spoons circa 1890 are some ofseveral pieces of antique and collectable silver that I have also listed.
