A rare set of six richly gilt sterling silver fruit spoons in the original antique fitted case. The spoons bear the maker’s mark of the French silversmith Charles-Salomon Mahler in addition to the mark indicating silver fineness of .950 (used from 1819-1838), the Moyenne Guarantee mark (mask face) and the giraffe’s head inventory mark of 1838. Bigorne marks appear on the backs of the bowls along with Mahler’s mark within a diamond [ref.: “International Hallmarks on Silver” by Tardy]. Each spoon measures slightly less than 6 inches in length and bears a tiny script monogram near the tip of the handle. The backs of the spoons are unadorned save for the maker’s marks and bigornes. The set has a combined weight of 4 troy ozs.

Antiques are best appreciated when placed in context: while Mahler was busy designing and making these spoons the coronation of Queen Victoria was held, John Muir and John Wilkes Booth were born, the Cherokee people were being forcibly relocated in the Trail of Tears and Friedrich Bessel calculated the first accurate measurement of the distance to a star. As the practice of melting silver for its scrap value continues to this day the supply of authentic antique silver continues to dwindle - this is a chance to own a piece of history while you still can.
