ELEGANT DANISH SERVING SPOON - HEISE
Nordic silver of the 20th Century is in a class of its own – attempts to copy it seem to fall short. This spoon embodies the the frequent simplicity of plain and flat surfaces relieved by something organic and sculptural often encountered in modern Danish patterns. The handle's length and width are emphasized by a sharp, straight line down the center, terminating with a curved, bowl of flowers. The shape of the bowl echoes the curves of the flower bowl, which could be sitting atop a column. The minimum purity of 826 fine is guaranteed by the mark of 3 towers on the reverse, with the year of manufacture – 31 (1931) – beneath, and assayed by the guardein, Christian Heise. A maker's mark is absent. Length of the spoon is 8-7/8 in., and weight is 66 g. There is no monogram or damage.
