Many of my customers choose to commemorate significant birthdays or anniversaries with these artist designed spoons and forks. Each of the designs relate to a Christmas theme and in fact, say "Julen" with the year on the reverse side (Julen is the Danish word for Christmas). A perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge each family member or to start a new tradition. Generations can arrive at the celebratory feast and see themselves honored by a fork and spoon at their place setting! A great way to create memories. And what a delightful addition to the much anticipated dessert course! Coffee and pie or cake or pudding!
Marketed through the Jensen shops, this is the 1984 spoon for the Christmas series by A. Michelsen, Denmark. It is gold wash on sterling silver with the design work done in enamel. This one is called "Christ's Child" and it was commissioned by Her Majesty, The Queen of Denmark, Margrethe II.
Lovely design. Its mate - the fork - is available separately. Excellent condition.
As with the very old, pre-1945 forks and spoons, those produced from 1980 to now are scarce in the secondary marketplace - thus the higher price level. Also, keep in mind, that Michelsen no longer produces or designs these sets. Irreplaceable!
