This large and heavy serving spoon is 10-1/4 inches long and weighs 125 (121) grams. Detail of the Rococo design is exquisite. This piece is well hallmarked (5 marks) and assayed at s'Gravenhage (Holland). VK is the manufacturers mark of Van Kempen in Voorschoten, in between Leiden and the Hague (something like the Gorham of the Netherlands, a little smaller, but in the States of course everything is much bigger). The C in the helmet of the Mercury head refers to the assay-office of the Hague. The lion indicates silver purity of 835/1000. The key stamp in it tells that the tax was refunded by export and stylized "N" corresponds to date 1897. Excellent condition circa 1875-1900. Please note - this is solid silver - NOT silver plated piece. Don't miss out on this great addition to your formal dining. Remember, Holidays are just around the corner - ENTERTAIN in style or surprise your loved one with this beautiful gift!
