UP FOR AUCTION, I HAVE 8 BEAUTIFUL, SMALL, BRASS SPOONS!!!

THESE OLD, ANTIQUE SPOONS ARE SOLID BRASS WITH 4 RED AND 4 BLUE, PORCELAIN, INLAID PATTERNS (WHICH CONTAIN 22kt GOLD CARVINGS) ON THE SPOONS HANDLES!!!

THE PATTERN RESEMBLES SOME TYPE OF NOBILILITY OR IMPORTANCE!!!

THE SPOONS MEASURE 4 1/8 INCHES LONG AND ARE VERY HEAVY!!! EACH SPOON IS STAMPED THAILAND ON THE BACK OF THE HANDLE-- ALL OF THIS INFORMATION IS VISIBLE IN MY PHOTOS!!!

THE INLAID , PORCELAIN DESIGN HAS 2 ELEPHANTS TOWARD THE TOP THAT SEEM TO BE WEARING A CROWN!!! THE INLAID DESIGN IS EITHER RED OR BLUE WITH THE ACTUAL DESIGN BEING 22kt GOLD.

THE ACTUAL DESIGN IS HAND CARVED INTO THE GOLD WHICH IS ON TOP OF THE COLORED PORCELAIN, MAKING EACH SPOON SOMEWHAT UNIQUE BECAUSE THE GOLD CARVING IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT ON EVERY SPOON!!! MEANING THAT THE ARTIST WAS WORKING BY SIGHT WITHOUT THE HELP OF ANY MAGNIFYING DEVICE!!!

THEY DEFINITELY ARE MEANT TO BE A SET, BUT THOSE SUBTLE DIFFERENCES (WHICH YOU DON'T NOTICE UNLESS YOU LOOK VERY, VERY CLOSELY) MAKE EACH SPOON UNIQUE!!!

MY CAMERA WILL NOT ZOOM IN CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO SEE THOSE SUBTLE DIFFERENCES IN THE GOLD CARVING, BUT WHEN YOU RECEIVE THESE SPOONS, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THIS IF YOU LOOK VERY, VERY CLOSELY!!!
