1870 Exquisite Dutch Silver Serving Spoon of Steer and Milkmaid Sterling


Only 1 available

Once in a while, there is a piece of silver that rises far above the rest. This large Dutch serving spoon is such a piece. The bowl features a vividly detailed scene of a farmer resting under a tree with his flock of rams, ewes, and steers. There is a bird flying about. Above the bowl, the stem features a typical Dutch twisted barley design. Setting it apart is the pair of opposed dolphins on the stem. At the top of the handle is a milkmaid with her two buckets on a yoke across her shoulders. She wears clogs, a hat, and rural garb.

The hallmarks are worn, although the lion passant for 833 silver items is clear on the bowl. Condition is excellent. 53.8 grams. Dimensions: 8 1/4".
