A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

silver soup ladle - Germany


German antique silver soup ladle this is a fiddle thread silver soup ladle made in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) by silversmith Schott (a large ladle by the same firm is illustrated on my page #61).
Information about this maker is kindly supplied by Charles C. Cage:
Firma Johann Heinrich Ph. Shott Söhne - is Wolfgang Scheffler, 'Goldschmiede Hesse', Frankfurt aM # 548 mark #327. This mark was used into the 1840s. Johann Martin Shott¹s widow ran his workshop with the assistance of Philipp Heinrich Friedrich Wülcker, Jr. (Master 1829), who married Shott¹s daughter Anna and eventually inherited the firm. Also, there are subtle differences in the eagle/13 mark from the 18th to the 19th century, and the square outline of the 13 on this ladle - as well as the design - makes me think it dates from around 1830.

The purity degree of silver is 13 loth, corresponding to 812,5/1000.
The soup ladle is 13 1/2 in. long (cm. 34) and was bought at Flohmarkt (flea market) in Wien.

This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the right bar of this page there are some links to websites of silver and antique dealers
