This wonderful Danish hallmarked serving spoon is an extra large size with very detailed designs. It is monogrammed AW in Old English script. Just below the monogrammed initials is the year 1914. And, just below that is a tiny heart. There is a floral shape at the top of the bowl near the handle.
The marks include the 3 towers for Copenhagen, the maker's initials HPL for H.P. Larsen, (Nakskov 1893 - 1948). the Assay Master's mark for Christian F. Heise (1904 - 1932), and a fourth mark not familiar to me with the initials DTA or DA with a symbol in between the letters.. The Danish 3 towers mark guarantees a silver content of a minimum of 826/1000 which is not quite sterling.
It measures 11" long. The bowl measures a bit over 2 3/4" wide and 4 1/8" high. It sparkles and feels soft to the touch just like good old silver does. It weighs 108 grams (almost 4 ounces) so it's not a light weight utensil. It displays wonderful workmanship and a joy to use. It has a shallow dimple in the bowl at about 11 o'clock with the handle up. I tried to photograph it and it looks worse in the photo than it really is. Other than that, the condition is excellent.
