ABOUT: Beautiful set of four antique / Victorian Tiffany & Co. sterling silver figural aesthetic floral demitasse spoons! One of my favorite patterns, this was one of the first that got me hooked on collecting and using sterling at home. NO MONOGRAMS! These date to the late 1800s, and the pattern originates to 1885. Would be adorable for display or afternoon tea! The artwork on these little handles is amazing, extremely detailed and the designs cover the front and the back, up and down both sides of the stem. Incredible quality of artwork typical of Tiffany & Co. PATTERNS & Hallmarks: Set contains: Clover, Thistle, Ragged Sailor, Morning Glory The marks on this pattern are always abbreviated due to the small size and reads "T & Co. STG", with the STG indicating sterling. Some of the marks have a little more wear than others but it's there on all of them. CONDITION NOTES: These spoons are in estate condition considering they are over 125 years old, the detailed stems look especially nice. You can see some wear from use and polishing in the spoon bowls made more evident by the smooth mirrored finish, you will see some areas surface scratching, utensil marks and nicks here that vary from spoon to spoon and there so PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A MINT CONDITION SET, but I see no dings, dents or damage to any of the floral designs on the handles, they are still nice and crisp. All are shaped nicely with straight stems and rounded bowls. A few faint scuffs on the back where they meet the table, etc. There are a few stubborn tarnish spots in the bowl of the morning glory spoon. Just being picky and studying them closely so there are no surprises : ) MEASUREMENTS: These spoons are teeny tiny, and measure about 4" in length each, a few slightly more to 4 1/8". The entire set weighs about 40 grams combined on my little digital scale so while they are petite, they are made in the superior quality typical of Tiffany.
