A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

silver wedding spoon - Germany


German wedding spoon this silver wedding spoon is of German area origin. The only hallmark is "13", meaning that silver contents is 13 "loth", that is 812/1000. Loth is an ancient unit of measure for silver used in Germany until 1888. Lacking town and silversmith mark is difficult to identify age and origin of this piece. A reasonable hypothesis assigns it to the end 18th / beginning 19th century.
The spoon is parcel-gilded and the handle is decorated with lion mask, female profile ivy's crowned, mythological animals and fruit clusters.
The spoon is 6 1/2 in. long (cm. 16,5) and was bought from a German dealer through the Internet.
This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the bottom and on the right bar of this page there are some links to silver and antique dealers websites
