Offered is a lovely and well-made set of French silver-gilt dessert spoons made by specialist spoonmaker Laurent Labbe, working at 61 Rue de Quincampoix in Paris circa 1829-52.

Georg Jensen "Acadia" aka "Blok" Sterling Silver Tea Caddy Spoon
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3250f   $80.00


click for details
The design on this piece is variously identified as "Acadia" or "Blok," or sometimes combined, with or without a hyphen.
