A fine set to add to your collection! Here we have a super looking silver sugar basket with the spoon as pictured. It is believed by the previous owners family to date from sometime circa 1960.
Featuring a swing handle, the bowl has beautiful decorations in a band around the external rim and over the handle. There is a similar but not identical decoration on the spoon handle.
They go very well together as you can see. Both the spoon bowl and the inside of the sugar bowl still have a vibrant gilt wash as shown. The basket stands 3.5" high (to the top of the upright handle) with a diameter of approximately 4" (measured across the top rim of the bowl area). It is 1.25 deep.The spoon is just less than 5 long. Under the basket there is an impressed star with hammer and sickle emblem and number of fineness (875). This is a mark that was used in Russia after 1958. The bowl and spoon jointly weigh 177.3g which equates to 6.25 imperial ounces or 5.69 troy ounces when placed on the scales together.
This is a lovely looking bowl, there are no deep scratches, nasty dents, or serious misshapes anywhere to report as far as I can tell. It has just the typical light, faint surface scuffs and scratches externally that all silver objects tend to acquire over the years. There is no wobble if it is put down on a flat surface.
The spoon is not bent or misshapen either. This gorgeous looking set is being offered here in a used vintage condition, exactly as pictured.Pictures are part of Description.
