Many of my customers celebrate Christmas and include their children's/parents/grandchildren's birth years with these spoons/forks. A perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge each family member and start a tradition. A great way to create memories.
Marketed through the Jensen shops, this is the 1943 spoon for the Christmas series by A. Michelsen, Denmark. This one is called "Dove of Peace" and was designed by Olaf Stæhr- Nielsen.
Its mate - the fork - (if still available) is listed separately.
There is parcel gilt as well as enamel on this piece. The abstraction of this subject is masterfully executed.
Keep in mind that Christmas Spoons and Forks by Michelsen from pre-1945 are less available and therefore rarer and pricier. Several others are listed here on my site.
