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