12 etched silver spoons. Danish? Marks as shown 18cm in length approx 21grams each. Nice condition
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful set of Danish Empire spoons. Such antique spoons of silver are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The spoons were made by Danish silversmith Peter Fredrik Munk, from the town of Faaborg on the isle Fyn in Denmark. He was working as a silversmith with own smithy from 1851 to his death in 1856. His widow continued 1 year after his death.
The pattern is called Empire and is common in Denmark on silver from this era. The 12 spoons appear to be in good condition considering the age of the spoons.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online silver auction, where I believe the spoons has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the Danish silver spoons. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
