Amazing antique 1878 silverplated Rococo English Berry Spoons: scalloped repoussé bowls burst w/ leaves, fruits, flowers & acorns, w/ Victorian Aesthetic solid handles: carved zigs and zags and ferns and dots and circles, culminating in an oval cartouche that could hold an engraved monogram, if desired. There are spoons, and then there are SPOONS! This pair is the latter...so intricately designed, you can look and look, and continually notice new details...these will elicit comments at your next dinner party, guaranteed!

The (unknown) maker's mark on the back uses the English Design Registry convention from 1868-1883, most often seen on pottery: a baseball diamond shape with "I" in the top circle, indicating the class of metal; in the diamond, the number "9" on top, for the day of the month; the letter "D" to the right for the year, 1878; "D" in the bottom, for the month, September; and the number "7" to the left, for the bundle number (whatever that was!)...the letters "Rd" in the middle stand for Registry Design, I assume.

Condition: Extremely good! There is some slight plate loss on the back of the bowls; otherwise, the silver glows with a lovely luster, and the exquisite details are enhanced by a light patina.

These measure 9.5" in length [24.15cm], and the spoon bowl is about 1/2" deep [1.3cm].
