When only the very best will do. Magnificent late-19th century heirloom Belgian Silver {or very high quality silverplate} and Vermeil Ice Cream or Dessert Set consisting of 6 spoons, the centers of which are beautifully engraved with Aesthetic floral, foliage and bug motifs on a vermeil (gold-washed) background.

Each spoon is hand chased and adorned with a different pattern of exquisite floral and foliage design on the squared, hand hammered bowls in gold vermeil. The handles are twisted vermeil, then round, ending in a charming ball. Two of the spoons feature a beetle, and butterfly, respectively. Absolutely divine, in very good condition, with the mixed metal effect I absolutely adore. Marked with assay mark as well as maker's mark, unfortunately despite exhaustive research we have not been able to identify the maker. Finely housed in the  original presentation red leatherette box, lined in soft green silk, with the original stamped label still perfectly readable on the inside lid.

Perfectly kept for over a century by a collector in Europe, sets like this are a once~in~a~lifetime find, especially in this condition. I hope that you will be able to tell that each one of these is a master silversmith's creation, due to the vermeil and hand hammered reflective properties, these beauties were extemely difficult to capture on film! Each collectible spoon measures 5" long, bowl 1" x 1~5/8".
