Six Antique Moscow Silver-Gilt and Niello Spoons

$1,995.96per set

About

This Fine set of six silver-gilt spoons is distinctive for the intricate niello designs that decorate the back of each bowl. The back of each spoon bowl has been engraved with the image of a Russian building. These incised lines have been filled with a metallic alloy, called niello, which provides the design with a strong black outline. The drawings have been confidently drafted using bold lines, yet great attention is also paid to detail. Beneath, on the spoon back, are scrolling decorative patterns. On each spoon, near the handle, the stem is fluted in niello, with silver banding wrapped around it. The terminal of each spoon is teardrop shaped, with a still smaller drop at its end. A specially-made fitted case is used to store the set. Measures: Spoons- height 14cm, width 2cm Case- height 4cm, width 20cm, depth 18cm Combined weight- 120grams.
