934/1000 silver, 21.8 cm and 9 grams
Beautiful antique spoon in good condition. Considering the age I would even say it is in excellent condition!
The stem has an engraving that at the top moves into a medallion with a bow.
The spoon has an adhesion with a double drop.
The front of the spoon is rich with colours: the 2 city shields of Utrecht, as a hallmark for the city of Utrecht, the letter O which stands for 1797 and the master mark in a rectangle: IVN = Jacob van Nieuwcasteel.
Also it has a tax mark of a ‘crowned O’, which stood for mandatory reinspection in 1807 and finally a crowned V = a Dutch tax mark from the 19th century.
The spoon still has a control mark, which was used by the guilds to check the grade of the silver.
Also the model is interesting because it is a less common type, it looks like English models but a small number were made in the Netherlands.
