Silver

A plique a jour caddy spoon attributed to David Andersen

For sale is this lovely plique a jour silver caddy spoon.  It is unmarked (there is no room for a mark) but I am confidently attributing to the famous Norwegian silversmith David Andersen, dating to c 1900.  Ornate tea spoons like this are not uncommon but I have never seen a  caddy spoon in this style.  Please see images for this spoon photographed with flash, and then photographed with back lighting to get the full effect of the plique a jour.

Condition is excellent, there are tiny hairline firing cracks to a few plique a jour panels visible under magnification only. For more details on plique a jour enamel and Andersen’s work see a website by the major collector Bob Corson at this link.
