Appropriately simple and hopeful, this Christmas spoon was made during the heart of WWII.
Many of my customers choose to commemorate significant birthdays or anniversaries with these artist designed spoons and forks. Each design relates to a Christmas theme and in fact, says "Julen" or "Jul" with the year on the reverse side (Julen is the Danish word for Christmas).
A perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge each family member or to start a new tradition. Generations can arrive at the celebratory feast and see themselves honored by a fork and spoon at their place setting! A great way to create memories. And what a delightful addition to the much anticipated dessert course! Coffee and pie or cake or pudding!
Marketed through the Jensen shops, this is the 1943 spoon for the Christmas series by A. Michelsen, Denmark. It is sterling silver with the design work done in white and green enamel. This one is called "The Dove of Peace" and it was designed by Olaf Stæhr- Nielsen.
Excellent condition with little to no of the gold wash remaining. Thus the lower price than the other 1943 spoon listed separately.
Also, the 1943 fork, if still available, is listed separately.
Keep in mind, that Michelsen no longer produces or designs these sets. Irreplaceable!
