Pristine set of twelve teaspoons a classic Louis XV rocailles pattern by master French silversmith Henri Soufflot. The pattern is simple and elegant; the rocailles graceful, accented with foliate tendrils drifting upward from the base of the handles. The back of each spoon decorated with intertwined branches of the same foliate variety, atop a finely chased shell shaped rocaille. The set unmarked, not monogrammed, and seemingly unused. A lovely gift, a great addition to your own service; a pattern that only complements. A period box is included with the spoon set.
Marks: Each spoon bears the Minerve 1st titre; French guarantee for .950 sterling silver, as well as the maker's punch for Henri Soufflot. Soufflot active in Paris from 1884-1910.
Dimensions: The teaspoons are 5.5" long, 1" at the widest and weigh 18.5 grams. The total weight 221 grams of nearly pure sterling silver.
Please note: we are also offering a meat and fish serving piece set in this pattern, by Olier and Caron. The service is similarly pristine, without monograms, and our item number 1009.
