8 Wood & Hughes "Cellini" Sterling Ice Cream Spoons
$ 240 set
Dating from 1875, Wood & Hughes' "Cellini" falls into the Renaissance Revival style that was popular in the period. This set of matching ice cream spoons measure 5 9/16" long each and weigh 4.7 T. oz. the set. They have ovoid bowls with flanged rims and matte finish interiors. Both sides of the bowls had gold washes, with the backsides retaining more of this detail than the fronts. There are no monograms or removals and the condition of all eight pieces is flawless. There is no evidence of wear or use, and the finishes have a fine, natural patina to them. Marks are "W&H," "Sterling," and the name of the retailer, "H. Semken," of Washington, D.C.
