This Gorgeous 830 Continental Silver Serving Spoon is from the 1800s. It is beautifully shaped and engraved with a nicely flowing floral and bow design, with ornate initials in the cartouche at the top of the handle. There is also an inscription on the reverse which you will see in the pictures. It is fully marked John Stamnas 830 S, and it measures 8" long and 1 7/8"wide across the bowl. The condition is excellent, with just light surface scratches which you would expect from normal use, part of the patina. A truly magnificent piece of estate silver to add to your collection.
