JEANNE ILLENYE Antique Sterling Silver Demitasse & Teaspoons

Sterling Silver Demitasse and Teaspoons
16x12 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
This was a commissioned painting with spoons from my client's collection which included a set of demitasse spoons she'd later regretted selling. Therefore, I added them into this composition so she'd still be in possession of them. What makes this set particularly unique is the engraving on the back, "Father". In all my years of collecting I've never seen this. Also, I added the letter "C" on the Whiting Lily patterned teaspoon to personalize it for her last name. The other two patterns are Grande Baroque and the darling angel is Watson Cherub.
