Dating from 1902, George Shiebler's group of twelve month designs follows closely after his Flora series and his line pattern "Fiorito." All of them incorporate Art Nouveau, floral motifs.
This trio includes the months of "April," "September," and "November," and portrays respectively, a lily, a poppy, and a chrysanthemum.
Each spoon measures 6" long, and is heavy, weighing something over 1.0 T. oz. each, with slight variation piece to piece.
The condition of all the spoons is excellent. The high relief pattern detail remains clear and well-defined. "April" shows some light, overall softening of detail from polishing. The bowls are well-shaped and without dents, nicks or burrs, showing only surface scratching on the interior.
Please note: the name of each month is incorporated in stylized lettering on the lower part of each handle. "September" is very clear, "November" is a little rubbed, while "April" is nearly obscured from polishing.
All the pieces are marked with the Shiebler "winged S" emblem and "Sterling." "September" and "November" are also stamped "Patent Apl'd For" on the backside heel of the bowls.
