Reed&barton Trajan Sterling Silver Spoon Ring 1892 Sz 7-11 Art Nouveau Nice For Sale
LIKE NEW 110 YEAR OLD PATTERN!...ART NOUVEAU FLORAL...CRISP...DEEP RELIEF...RARE...SZ 7-11...SRIKING!
This ring is a near hypnotic swirl of abstracted floral elements. Just below is a more literal rendition of a wild rose, surrounded by more Art Nouveau swirls. Deep relief casting with rich detail on both sides of the handle. Fabricated from a like new souvenir spoon it is a fairly
hefty ring at 18 grams and 3/4" across. I made it size 8 and I can
adjust it from 7 1/2 to 10. Rare, collectible pattern. Very eye catching!
One of several outstanding designs from my collection of rare and exotic antique silverware patterns. I have been handcrafting spoon rings since the '70s. Some of the ornate beautiful patterns that once were commonplace are now rapidly disappearing. All of my rings are fabricated from STERLING handles that were cast 50-100 years ago. A few are older. I seek out designs that reflect artistic and design excellence. A few are true gems in their class. I also look for handles with only slight or no apparent wear.
I regard these old silverware pieces to be true works of art, a remnant of an era when artistic talent and production standards were valued in the silverware industry. In this day of bland and poorly cast stainless handles, and plasticware, these old spoon rings are a tribute to the past.
I do not deal in reproductions, recastings or originals altered in any way. I also do not make any rings from silverplate. My prices are determined by scarcity, aesthetic appeal, and my cost to buy materials. I welcome your questions and comments, and to my many past customers, I am grateful for your generous response.
