Special Set of 10 Whiting, "Louis XV" Sterling Silver Five O'Clock Teaspoons, Demitasse, or Dessert Spoons. Beautiful scalloped scrolls and shells trim each spoon, Monogrammed with the letter "K," in a coordinating, fancy script. (Note: The Louis XV pattern, circa 1891, is among the most collectible of Whiting Manufacturing Company's Sterling Silver patterns.) These rare spoons, originally designed for the afternoon/Five O'Clock Tea hour, are very versatile, today, for serving dessert, coffee, or ice cream, etc. Measuring
5 1/4" Long x 1" Wide (spoon bowl), we often use this size spoon for eating yogurt out of the plastic cups! Excellent condition, with only minor wear. Marked on the back with a left-facing lion, "sterling" and "pat 1891." Also marked with the name of the upscale jewelry store, "E. Keller & Sons," of Allentown, PA, which sold these spoons. Sold as Set of 10.
