A beautiful asset for any tea table, this early Silver Sugar Sifter Confection Spoon is exceptional and a rare find. Known as a Saupoudreuse or Sugar Sifting Spoon, difficult to come by one as early as this. This piece has an exquisite scalloped pierced bowl, and a hand stippled and engraved feminine handle patterned with elegant Louis XVI Rococo styling. Marked for Dutch silver, date letter for 1861.
The sifter spoon has a fluted and intricately pierced bowl, with little "x's" and flower shapes. Meant for sprinkling powdered sugar over fruit or dessert - Muffins, Crumpets or Cakes. A gorgeous and sturdy piece to add to your collection of fine silver, and to add to your gracious entertaining.
