The pieces come from the collection and estate of the late American actress and singer, Rose Marie. Very good vintage condition with spots of tarnish and light wear to the gilt surfaces.

Anton Michelson (1809-77) was a pioneering Danish silver and goldsmith, establishing his own company in 1841. Michelsen was appointed Court Goldsmith and Maker of Orders in 1848. For four generations, the Michelsen firm was a leading and influential dynasty of gold and silversmiths, designing many jewelry and silver commissions for the Danish Royal Family. The company issued their first commemorative Christmas spoon in 1910 and commissioned a noted Danish artist to design a new Christmas set every year.
