Antique Vintage Russian? Norwegian? Enamel Silver ? Spoon Belle Epoque? Ca. 1900 For Sale
For your considerationAntique or Vintage Russian? or Norwegian? Enamel Silver? Tea Spoon dating to the Belle Epoque?Apologies for all the question marks, but I have absolutely no knowledge about enameled tea spoons. I will try my best to describe this piece. This spoon came with a Victorian fan. I am guessing by its style that it dates to the Belle Epoque (around 1900). It is made of what may or may not be solid silver (have not tested it). It appears to be partially gilded. The handle and the spoon and have coloured enamel inserts. The thin part of the handle is stamped with the number "9508". The spoon measures ca. 11.5cm long and ca. 2cm wide. I presume it was made as an ornament and not as a useable spoon. The spoon needs to be cleaned. Sadly, it is missing a small section of enamel and several bits are crazed/cracked (mostly the clear bits).

I did a bit of research and the stamp may well read "850S", the Norwegian standard mark for silver, in which case this piece really is Norwegian in origin.
