David Andersen Sterling & Enamel Norway Signed Salt Spoons
What a great set of five matching David Andersen Norwegian salt spoons! They are made of sterling silver with a light gold wash. The tops of the handles have a shield or crest shape with a crown on top. They are enameled with cobalt blue left facing lions, and red hearts with white enameling at the edges. The spoons measure just shy of 2 1/2" long by almost 9/16" across the bowls. They are signed with the bench tools forging tongs and hammer mark of DAVID ANDERSEN and also marked 925S. I did some research to date these spoons and one well known site listed this mark as being used from 1888 - 1925. My feeling is that these are probably antique Edwardian era, but they could have been made from the Victorian era to the vintage Art Deco period. If you have any more information, I would be interested in hearing from you. Good condition with age appropriate wear to the gold wash. The enamel is in good condition with some loss to the white enamel on one of the spoons right under the crown as seen in the close up photo. Otherwise, there is only very minor loss, tiny imperfections that were in the making and a few very fine lines noted under high power magnification. What a great find for the collector of Scandinavian silver! You will treasure them!!!
