A Lovely and Delicate Antique French Silver Sugar Sifter Spoon dating to the second part of the 18th century.
The bowl of the spoon is in beautiful ‘reperce’ motif showing a Rose Window cut out.
The handle is simply and elegantly double lined.
The handle shows an L and A monogram engraved in a shield.
The work is very refined and the piece is in gorgeous condition.
The design is typical of the early to mid 18th century.
Lovely to use to sprinkle sugar over fresh strawberries per example!
The width given above is that of the spoon’s bowl.
The Hallmark is Fermiers Generaux for Paris 1768-1775 showing a Crowned A, along with the head of a woman as a discharge mark.
The Makers Mark is too erased on the right hand side to be properly identified, but we are still working on it.
It show an N and an Oak leaf below
