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 1934 fork for the Christmas series by A. Michelsen, Denmark. This one is called "Holy Night".
There is parcel gilt as well as enamel on this piece.
Please note that whenever you are about to purchase a Michelsen Christmas fork or spoon, make sure you pay attention to the absence of the gilding as it makes a major difference in the price. This one is in excellent condition with all its gilding intact.
The forks are always much harder to find and ultimately manufacture of them was stopped in the early 2000s. A few years later the Michelsen spoons were discontinued as well.
We are one of the few sellers who do not sell in sets of spoons and forks believing that not all people want both pieces and we don't feel they should be 'forced' to buy both if all they want is the one. Spoons in this pattern are much more widely found. This is a rare opportunity to purchase the fork by itself.
