Robin's Egg Blue Enamel on Sterling Bonbon or Nut Spoon

This is a very, very pretty bonbon spoon with an enamelled handle and gold-washed sterling bowl. The gold wash is on all the silver areas. The blue enamel is on both the front and back of the handle.

The shape of the bowl is like a scooped shield shape with very nice piercings. Of course, bonbon spoons are used as servers for all kinds of nuts and small candies - especially those coated with salt (thus the gold wash to protect the sterling silver).

Finally...we purchased another of these spoons in a different color and with clearer hallmarks. We now know that this made in Massachusetts by Watson & Co. They operated from 1880-1955 and we think this and the other spoon date from 1910-1940. Please make sure to see the other one with cobalt blue enamel. They make a great pair!

The enamel is done on a guilloche ground (the pattern in the silver that shows through th enamel) which gives it another layer of visual interest.]

The spoon measures 4 7/16th inches long. Condition is superb - excellent! No damages.

The last photo shows this bonbon along with the other mentioned earlier.
