Description


These exceptional antique Victorian English cast sterling silver serving spoons have been crafted in a figural form.


Each cast sterling silver handle terminal is modelled in the form of a putto* covering himself strategically with a floral arrangement.


The characters surmount impressive pedestal style stems, each accented with a shield shaped vacant cartouche and interlacing fruiting vine ornamentation.


The posterior surface of each stem incorporates a ribbed texture to the waisted portion.


These exceptional Victorian silver serving spoons have plain rounded bowls accented with a rat-tail design to the heel.


These spoons were crafted by the renowned London silversmith Francis Higgins II.


Such figural spoons are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.

* In art and culture, a putto (plural: putti) is a chubby male child, usually nude and occasionally bearing wings.


Date: 1870
