The pillar style handle has a relief ribbon with lettering wrapped around it. The end of the handle is decorated with a conical element. The original of this spoon is an early 16th century Scandinavian spoon, which is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. This spoon is a perfect replica of it, made by Peter Hertz from Copenhagen/Denmark. The firm Peter Hertz ist the oldest jeweller firm in Denmark. It was founded in 1834 and became soon a Royal Court Jeweller. The mark can be dated into 1893-1912. Condition very good!
