Dutch Silver (833) Apostle Spoon of Saint Andrew, circa 1906

This is a fascinating 833 silver apostle spoon, made in Schoonhoven, Holland in 1906. The apostle featured on this spoon can be identified as Saint Andrew, since he is holding a diagonal cross. Apostle spoons are meant to symbolize the Last Supper of Christ in the company of the Apostles. They were typically made of silver with an image of an apostle as the termination of the handle, each holding a distinctive emblem. These spoons were particularly popular in Pre-Reformation times when the public still strongly believed in the services of a patron saint.

This spoon measures 9" x 2 1/4". The "W" mark indicates that it was made in 1906. The key mark indicates that it was made for export. The helmeted soldier mark indicates that is was made in Schoonhoven and also shows the 833 silver standard. This spoon is in excellent condition. It does have a "C.L.W." monogram on the inside of the bowl.
