Tea and Coffee Spoons.
Why do we keep them?
Because they are beautiful!
I love these little Hanoverian style spoons with their 'turn-up' handles. A bit of 1930's retro!
They are English hallmarked sterling silver.
"EV" = Emile Viner.
Crown = Sheffield
Lion = Sterling
"n" = 1930
They were produced by Viner's of Sheffield, Bath Street, later Broomhall Street. The company was founded by a Jewish family (Viener) who emigrated to England from Germany in the late 19th century. Around 1900 the family settled in Sheffield.Emile Viener and his brother Adolf changed their name to Viner in November, 1925.
They are mint in the box and have probably only been used a few times over the last eighty years. Please excuse the fluff in the box!
