HUGUET: Antique French Sterling Silver Vermeil Berry Spoon Fitted Box

Beautiful Louis XVI style berry spoon, crafted entirely in .950 French sterling silver, by Jean Baptiste Huguet, active in Paris from 1895. The strapped handle terminates in a cartouche decorated with crossed torches, ribbons, roses and leafy tendrils. From the base a magnificent intricately chased acanthus frond and a pair of bell flower strands. Please note the absence of any monogram on the spoon, or the box. The bowl of the spoon generously plated in 18k gold, chased to silver, with bell flowers and leafs. This affords a mixed metal affect that is quite pleasing. Condition is excellent. The spoon comes in the original fitted box. A pristine piece of silverware, a wonderful gift.

Marks: The Minerve 1st titre, the French .950 sterling silver guarantee, and the maker's punch for Jean Baptiste Huguet, Paris 1895.

Dimensions: The spoon is 9" long, 3.25" at the widest, and weighs 85 grams. The box is 10.5" long, 4.5" wide and 2" high or deep.
