Norwegian silver and enamel spoons

Postby many45 » Wed Mar 26, 2008 6:55 pm

I have these 6 spoons, made by J. Tostrup, Oslo. How old are they? What sort of enamelling is used here? I hope anyone can help me.

I think that your spoons are made late on the 1930 or in the 1940. It is "speilemalje" if it is what you mean.

Thank you Tosten!
My guess was also 1930 -40. Glad to have that confirmed.
Are you sure this is "speilemalje"? The metal ornaments are higher than the enamel. Isn't "speilemalje" translucent with guilloched metal underneath?
The lenght of the spoons is 14,5 cm and the bowls are 4,5 cm wide. What sort of spoons are they? Compote spoons? Marmelade spoons?
