Beautiful set of 12 Mint Julep or Ice Tea Spoon Straws. I've seen many of these sets and this is one of the nicest. In my opinion, the detail of the leaves and quality of the work are even better than the Tiffany sets I have seen.
Very nice, heavily veined leaves with a tendril running up the straw. The entire piece has minute lines running straight down the straws and onto the leaves giving them a brushed finish. The leaves are exceedingly well made, heavy and very study. Each leaf is slightly different, proving that these were hand made and individually cut and shaped.
Each piece is stamped Taxco, 925 and Sterling. Most are also marked Rancho Alegre and several are signed Giles.
Spoons are about 8 1/4" long. At it's widest points, the leaves measure about 1" wide x 1 1/2" long not including the tendril.
Made in the late 1950's or early 60's, they are in near mint condition. Total weight is just over 120 grams.
