Rare Set of 8 Antique John Wendt RIBBON Large Sterling Silver Ice Cream Spoons c. 1870 ~ No Monogram!

Hallmark:  Sterling,  Roehm & Chittenden

Size:  Varies ~ 6 & 1/4 to 9 inches
Quantity:  1 Set = 5 pcs Sterling +  Box & Note

A wonderful large antique five piece sterling silver dessert serving set, complete with original presentation box, manufactured by Gorham Whiting in the Alhambra pattern, c. 1880's.

The pieces are as follows:

1)  9 inch berry spoon

1)  8 & 5/8 inch all sterling pie server

1)  9 inch pudding spoon

1)  6 & 1/4 inch sugar sifter ladle ~ spoon

1)  7 inch preserve spoon

Each of the pieces is hallmarked sterling, along with various numbers and the retailers' name; Roehm & Chittenden.

With the exception of the pie server, all of the pieces feature heavy gold wash gilt bowls.  The shell shaped sifter bowl is scalloped, fluted and beautifully pierced.  The pie server is lavishly hand engraved in an aesthetic design.

Handles are lightly monogrammed;  Esther.

All of the pieces in this set are in exceptionally fine estate condition.  We see no dings or dents and the parcel gilt remains very bright and shiny, with just a hint of wear to spoon backs where they rest in the satin lined box.  Handles retain original shape and pattern design remains quite crisp and defined.

The blue satin interior lining does show some scuffs around the serving holders, as well as a few marks and some dust.  Retailers name is marked in gold lettering inside lid; Roehm & Chittenden ~ Detroit.

The original box appears to have a leather covered exterior and there are some scuffs and scratches, but otherwise the box is in sound condition; hinges and latch work well.

A very old handwritten note was found enclosed in the box and will be included.  It indicates that this set was a wedding gift for Esther Chase Smith, with a date of October 24, 1871; possibly a date of birth?

A 125 year old Victorian serving set, in exceptionally fine condition, complete with original presentation box...truely a wonderful, rare find.
