Beautiful 830 Silver Figural Handle Man & Crown Tea Caddy Spoon - Norge 1945 Norway - WWII
This beautiful vintage tea caddy spoon is made of 830 silver. The handle depicts a man holding a crown aloft with an air of triumph. The bowl reads NORGE 1945 in the center and going around the edges of the bowl are the words BRUTT BLEV LENKER BAND OG TVANG which translates as Broken were links, ties and coercion. I'm not sure what significance this has and if you know, I would be very happy to hear from you. The spoon measures about 4 3/4" long by 1 13/16" across the bowl. Signed A.S. HODNE and also marked NM 830S and has a mark that looks like a chalice which may be the mark of Marthinsen and an N inside a square shape. Good vintage condition with light age wear. You will love this!!!
