Re: Silver (plated?) Bottle

Your welcome. Just Google Jan Francis Schutjes and you will find some of the pewter items made by him, including auction results. You have a good looking hot water bottle made by a well known maker. Not rare but very nice and a true antique.

Re: Dutch Spoon gelegenheidslepel

In the book Nederlands klein zilver 1650-1880 by B.W.G Wttewaal on page 284 it 's mentioned ; for 17th-18th century decorative/ornamental spoons, the weight should be 2 to 3 g per cm. False spoons are often too heavy.

Re: Dutch Spoon gelegenheidslepel

Yes, some are gilded, sometimes only the inside of the spoon's bowl is gilded. My best guess your spoon is made in the Dutch province of Friesland (Frisia), late 18th to early 19th century. What is the weight of the spoon, below 51 gram?
