6 Antique Norwegian Sterling Silver & Enamel Tea Spoons By J Tostrup Circ 1920's For Sale
Superb Set of 6 Antique Norwegian Sterling Silver Gilt & Guilloche Enamel Tea Spoons circa 1920's
Each Tea Spoon measuresapproximately 3 3/4 inchesor 96 mmin length by 3/8 of an inch or 9 mm across the widest part of its upper handle from side to side and it is just under 7/8 of an inch or 21 mm across the widest part of its bowl.
The presentation case or box measures approximately 5 1/2 inches or 140 mm across its width from side to side by 5 5/8 inches or 143 mm across its length from the hinge to the front catch and it stands 1 1/8 inches or 29 mm tall to the top of its lid when closed.
All 6 tea or coffee spoons are madefrom sterlingsilver that have been gilded or gold plated with oval shaped bowls and they have delightful raised relief decorated lower handles, both sides of the handles along with the backs of the bowls have all been wonderfully decorated with different coloured guilloche enamel and the spoons are complete with their original hinged internally fitted presentation case or box that has a hinged catch on the front along with the original Norwegian retailers marks of Lauritz Andersen in gold within the lid, the tea or coffee spoons have Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram and all 6 spoons have been impressed on the backs of their handles with the Norwegian 925S standard sterling silver mark along with the Oslo silversmith or makers mark of JTostrup all as photographed below, I estimate that this set of spoons were made circa 1920's.
Thecondition is used and near Mint for their age.
The spoons have NoDents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holes and No RepairsthatI can find, the spoons are straight, the decoration is very crisp, the Norwegian silver and makers marks are still clearly legible, the presentation case opens and closes with ease, the enamel decoration is in mint condition with no chips and no cracks on all of the handles although as this set of spoons is a used antique four of them have tiny slither like chips to the top edges of their bowls that is very common with these spoons and the outer body of the box has one missing hinge along with some external scuffs, the spoons have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patina of age that is to be expected and a gentle clean would not go amiss. Personally I think that this set of antique Norwegian tea or coffee spoons can still be used today and that it would make a wonderful addition to any collection, I also think that the spoons look absolutely fantastic considering that they are around 90 or so years old.
This Superb Quality Boxed Set of 6 Antique Norwegian Gilded Sterling Silver & Guilloche Enamel Decorated Tea or Coffee Spoons circa 1920's is oneof several pieces ofantique and collectable silverthat I have also listed.
