Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A silver and enamel serving spoon by French & Franklin. A rare design, the server features blue enamel and and intricate openwork design which includes a Griffin at the top.
CONDITION: Very nice though there are small nibbles and small chips within the blue enamel dots. Hard to see with the naked eye but under a loupe, they are there. If restoration is desired, I am more than happy to pass on the name of my enamel restorer who will make this piece "as new". Silver needs a bit more of a polish as tarnish is visible.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: F in a circle as well as _____LING
SIZE: Length from end to end on a straight line is 6-3/4"; width at the handle top is 1"; width at the bowl is 2-1/16".
WEIGHT: 58 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: 1 of 3 pieces I was lucky enough to find!
