Vintage DANISH 830 Silver Serving Spoon by Horsens Sølvvarefabrik / W & S Sørensen Denmark
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: From Horsens Sølvvarefabrik / W & S Sørensen of Denmark, here's a silver serving spoon with an interesting stylized floral top.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems with only a good polish being needed to the piece. Yes, it has been used but there are no dents/dings, etc.
METAL CONTENT: I believe 830 silver as this is the silver content used by the firm at this time.
HALLMARKS: Two marks - first, the Three Tower Mark which is the Danish national assay mark and guarantees silver of a purity of at least 826 parts per 1000, if not more. Second, the initials of the maker, HS.
SIZE: Length of the spoon is 7-3/4" on a straight line; width of the bowl is 2-1/4".
WEIGHT: 50 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Horsens Sølvvarefabrik (Horsens Silver Factory) was a Danish silver manufacturer founded in 1904 by two brothers: S. P. Winter Sørensen (1880-1932; in charge of the retail outlet) and Sofus A. Sorensen (1884-1944; in charge of the factory). After Sofus' death in 1944 the factory and stores were taken over by family members.
