Dutch coffee spoon

Fabricated Sterling. Approximately 5 inches.

This one is pretty straightforward with the exception of the reticulated silver on the bowl.

The inside of the bowl has a little reticulation, but most of it was removed in the polishing.

That text is visible on this one.

It’s nicely dimpled.

Dutch coffee spoons

Dutch coffee spoons, fabricated Sterling and 14k gold, approximately 5 1/2 inches.

These are the latest addition to the Dutch coffee spoon collection.  They are meant to be “everyday” spoons, unique to the individual, and part of the morning routine.

The detail on the left shows the “vine” embellishment of one and the bowl of the other.  On the right is the opposite end of each.  This end is embellished with a 14 gold knob.


The reverse of both.

Fabricated Sterling. Approx. 6 inches.

This spoon has a matte finish. The reverse of the bowl shows the forging hammer marks. A riveted bail is attached to the end loop. It doesn’t really do anything, I just like the movement.

Here is the reverse:

Fabricated Sterling and 14k gold.  Approx. 5 inches.

This is meant to be an “everyday” spoon, unique to the individual, and part of the morning routine.  The bowl is polished on the front, and the forging marks remain on the reverse.  The bowl is nestled in a square wire frame formed so the corner, rather than the side, of the wire meets.  The end features a heavy, forged square with a 14k gold embellishment in its center.

Fabricated Sterling.  Approx. 7 1/2 inches.

The bowl is forged and I left the hammer marks as texture.  The square wire handle twists tighter as it approaches the t end.

A few more angles highlighting scale and proportion.  It’s long enough to use in a tumbler.
