A Lovely Antique French Silver Strawberry Serving Set by Maîtres Orfèvres HENIN & VIVIER
This complete set is in its original box, which shows only light scruff marks on the outside of it but is otherwise in excellent good state.
The set features a gorgeous Strawberry Service Spoon, decorated with a lovely strawberry branch.
The side of the spoon bowl is lightly scalloped.
The Sugar Sifter Spoon is a beauty with its bowl completely carved out in a foliage ‘repercé, while the bowl of the spoon attaches to the handle with a delicately carved laurel leaf branch leaf.
Both handles are worked in a delicate Louis XVI style, decorated with acanthus leaves and laurel chutes. The handle bears an AJ monogram.
Both pieces are intact.
A charming set!
The Sugar Sifter Soon measures 8.26 inches
The Serving Spoon measures 9.44 inches
The Hallmark is Minerva 1-1st title (950/1000)- 1838 -1919 – Paris
