Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this wonderful Imperial Russian cloisonne silver caddy spoon made by Gustav Klingert, Moscow 1891.The caddy spoon displays an excellent array of fine Imperial Russian craftsmanship; the gauge of the silver in hand feels very sturdy for such a compact item, yet the intricacy and delicate detailing of the enamelwork is stunning.
The reverse side of the spoon is meticulously decorated with fine twisted wires that create 'cloisons' in which blue, white and red enamels sit. The balance of colour and geometric patterns is delightful, especially considering how small the item is. Whilst it is challenging to convey through digital photos, in person, the finesse of the workmanship is further apparent and can be fully appreciated as all the intricate embellishments fit in the size of one's palm.
The handle is further decorated with enamelling and a section of a twisted design conjoins the bowl to the handle.
The spoon lends itself not only as an exceptional decoration for a collection/interior setting but if one wishes, it could be used practically with a tea caddy or perhaps even as a sugar spoon.
The spoon is marked with Klingert's makers mark "G.K" and a Moscow 84 stamp (1891).
