Beautifully hand crafted with incredible detailing, this set of 7 demitasse spoons by Stavre Gregor Panis features a nautical symbol on each handle. These include a ship's wheel, an anchor, a seahorse, a lobster, a sea gull, a dolphin, and a starfish. Each piece is signed. Circa 1930's and in mint condition, such a set is a rarity and even more desirable since it is by an American artist. A true treasure!
