Souvenir Spoon/Netherland Sterling Salt
A wonderful addition to anyones collection of souvenir salt spoons. A very nicely made windmill sits atop this spoon. The padals on the windmill do turn, although not real freely. There is a lot of detail on the windmill. The marks on the back:835 in an oval cartouche//another cartouche with HH and what appears to be an arrow going through the center from right to left(but is very hard to br sure about the arrow)//and the sword sterling mark for Nederland W/835 "ON" the blade(they began to put this on the blade in 1953). There are a few minor surface scratches on the back. There are a couple of tiny spots on the finish on the back. I only cleaned the marks real well, so these may clean off as well. I did not want to take all the patina off of the windmill. It measures aprox. 2 3/4"X1/2". The shipping fees quoted are for priority/No insurance in USA.
