A rare antique matching set of 5 mother of pearl handle teaspoons. There seems to be an abundance of mother of pearl handle serving spoons, but when it comes to matching flatware sets, the spoons seem to be a rarity with there only being a good availability of forks and knives. These spoons measure approximately 6 3/8" in overall length with about 1 1/2" of mother of pearl on the handle, above which is a bolster of sterling silver measuring about 1 5/8.
The sterling mark can be seen on 3 of the 5 spoons, so I cannot guarantee the composition of the others, but with all 5 matching and coming from the same estate, the assumption is that they are sterling as well. The spoon bowls and handle above the bolster appear to be silver plate. The spoons are in excellent vintage condition with tarnishing and surface scratching consistent with age and normal use. One of the thin, fragile sterling bolsters has a small tear in it.
