Very nice opportunity to own this beautiful pair of 2 sterling silver spoons by Watson / Mechanics in the pine cone motif from their Floral Series. Each is slightly different from the other so this is their two variants of the pattern. Nice crisp detail on both sides of the handles.
This pattern began production in 1903. Fantastic patina making the high relief designs really stand out. Both have souvenir information engraved in the spoon bowls and one has a name engraved on the back of the spoon bowl. The spoons measure about 5-1/4 in length each, one slightly longer, one just under. Weighs a combined 38 grams.
Marked Sterling on the back with the Watson hallmarks. This set is in estate condition with some surface wear and scratching that I tried to show in pictures, as well as all over wear and scratches from use and polishing. The backs have some scuffs and scratches as well where they meet the table. No damage or scratching, no dings or dents to any of the artwork or design, they don't seem to be very heavily used as I don't see many deep nicks utensil marks, and they have held their shape perfectly through the years, it seems to be just the smooth areas where any wear is made more evident by the mirrored finish. But Please note this set is not in mint condition.Has been hand polished but with an excellent patina so the high relief designs really stand out. I have many more pieces of sterling flatware listed so please see my other auctions and create a set! I dearly love, collect, use and sell antique American sterling silver flatware and housewares including Tiffany and Co. Gorham, Durgin, Shiebler and more! I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my new store.
