Description


This exceptional antique Norwegian silver spoon has an oval rounded shaped form with a narrow stem handle and knopped terminal.


The bowl is ornamented with engraved simplified swag and leaf decoration, in addition to the initials 'IHS'*.


The cast silver handle of this antique silver spoon is embellished with a simplified leaf design enveloping the tapering stem accented with a stylised creature to the posterior edge of the bowl.


* IHS comes from the first three letters of the Latinised version 'IHSOUS' of the Greek spelling 'ΙΗΣΟΥΣ', which translates as the Holy Name of Jesus. Many perceive these initials to delineate the Latin phrase 'Iesus Hominum Salvator' meaning 'Jesus the Saviour of all Men', which is not historically accurate.
