Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: A set of utensils for baby - a spoon and a fork. Each piece is made of silverplate/silver plate and bears a repousse design at the top of the handle - that of Raphael's cupid or angel or putti or cherub.
CONDITION: Very old with no high shine to the silverplate - everything has mellowed but that's what makes the appeal of these pieces so nice. They are basically for the artisan/jeweler who marks spoon rings - they two pieces would make for great rings!
METAL CONTENT: Silverplate
HALLMARKS: Art Silver Co on each piece
SIZE: Spoon is 5" long; fork is about 6" long.
FINAL COMMENTS: They could be used for their original purpose but I think turning the tops into rings would be a much more clever way to utilize these pieces!
