Boxed Set of 6 Antique Sterling Silver Seal Top Tea or Coffee Spoons by Levi & Salaman dated 1924
Each Spoonmeasuresapproximately 3 5/8 inches or 92 mm in length from the top of the handle to the front rim of its bowl by 1/4 of an inch or 6 mm across the width of its upper handle from side to side and it is 7/8 of an inch or 22 mm across the width of its bowl.
The presentation case or box measures approximately 6 1/4 inches or 159 mm across its length from side to side by 5 3/8 inches or 137 mm across its width from the hinges to the front catch and it stands 1 1/8 inches or 29 mm tall to the top of its lid when closed.
The spoonsare made from sterlingsilver with oval shaped bowls on simple straight square handles that each has a stepped rectangular seal like finial or top and the spoons have Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram, the spoons are complete with a gold tooled black leather bound hinged internally fitted black velvet and cream silk lined presentation case or box that has a sprung push button catch on the front all as photographed below, the back of each spoons bowl has been impressed with a full set of matching English sterling silver hallmarks that read as follows,
L&S - Anchor - Lion Passant - z
L&S is the Birmingham silversmith or makers mark of Levi &Salaman, the Anchor is the mark of the Birmingham assay office, the Lion Passant is the mark of English 925 standard sterling silver and the letter z is the date letter for 1924.
Thecondition is used and near Mint for their age.
The spoons have No Dents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holes and No Repairs that I have found, the spoons are straight, thedefinition is crisp, the silver hallmarks are still legible although as this is a used set of antique demitasse tea or coffee spoons the outer body of the case or box is scuffed and the spoons have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use, the spoons have 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 demitasse tea or coffee spoons can still be used today and that they would make a superb addition to any collection, I also think that they look fantastic considering that they are almost 90 years old.
These Delightful Boxed Set of 6 Antique SterlingSilver Seal Top Tea or Coffee Spoons from Birmingham dated 1924 are some of several pieces of antique and collectable silverthat I havealso listed.
