A Delicate Antique French Silver And Vermeil Ice Cream Spoon Set by Maître Orfèvre François Auguste Boyer Callot.
This lovely set of 12 spoons is done in the Francois 1er style, with a thin and carved handle with a cut out of leaves on the upper part.
The Silver is voluntarily partially gilded to enhance the design.
The bowl of the spoons are worked with 18 carat gold and are decorated with a beautifully carved Monogram showing a G and C.
All pieces are in great state, the gilding intact.
A charming find!
