3 Vintage Sterling Silver Serving Spoons by International Silver Co - Prelude Pattern
The pattern was produced in 1939 by International Silver and proved to be a best seller with its delicate look of a small floral spray. May I offer a trio of serving spoons - a gravy ladle, a bon bon or nut scoop and and a jam/jelly spoon. No monogram on any of the pieces. Condition is very nice with light marks of gentle use, storage and time (and probably some dust particles as well). The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos, the main polish I leave to the new owner. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver.
Metal Content: Sterling Silver
Hallmarks: International (Hallmark) Sterling, Prelude on each of the pieces.
Size: The ladle measures 5-3/4" on a straight line - the bon bon scoop measures 4-11/16" on a straight line and the jam/jelly spoon measures 5-13/16" long.
Weight: 80.2 Grams the three
Final Comments: A nice way to start your collection of Prelude Sterling.
NOTE: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items as possible. When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
