A beautiful sterling serving fork and spoon salad set with turquoise cabochon applied to each handle, signed on verso FP, with the Thunderbird Shop stamp, crafted by Frank Patania Sr (1899-1964). Patania was a well-known and respected jewelry designer, silver and goldsmith in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with a family tradition of fine craftsmanship passed down to his family, which is still vibrant today. The FP monogram on verso was confirmed by Patania's grandson as one of his earliest marks, dating to the 1930's or even earlier. This set is in fine condition, with nice patina, minimal surface scratches and other imperfections. Dimensions: Fork: 7 ⅞” h x 1 ⅞” w; Spoon: 8 ⅛” h x 1 ⅞” w.
Featuring period furniture, fine art, quality porcelain, silver and decorative accessories.
