You are bidding on (6 ) DEMITASSE (otherwise known as espresso ) SPOONS designed by GIO PONTI for ARTHUR KRUPP Milano Italy ...and the name of the pattern is MILANO
we have a lot of pieces listed in other auctions ... we did not mix them as many are special serving pieces
we would be happy to combine shipping on any of the Gio Ponti flatware
these are not to be confused with the later pressing ...post merger between Krupp and Fraser (these do not have the Fraser Krupp mark)
these have the EARLIER MARK ....which is ART KRUPP ITALY MILANO signature ....with the BEAR inside of a pentagon who has 2 paws up and underneath the bear is the word Nicro
the spoons measure 4 3/4" long and are in vintage used condition with no pitting , no disposal marks
**** please note: according to Replacements ...the LATER pressing of this by Fraser Krupp had a SATIN finish.... whereas OURS all have a GLOSS finish
and we just polished them with Flitz so they are gleaming *** also note:
if you look under the Arthur Krupp listings they have instead of the Fraser Krupp listings ... the prices are higher and they call this " AKT5
Description: STNLS,NIGRO,MILANO,WIDE BLUNT TIP,GLOSSY"

The branch of Arthur Krupp, called Societa Anonima (shortly S.A.) Italiana Metalli ed Argenteria Arthur Krupp (private company Metal- and Silver Factory Arthur Krupp), was open after 1924
The factory was operated in Desenzano al Serio near Milan (Milano), while the administration and the warehouse were situated in the city centre near the Milan Central Railway Station at Via Pergolesi 8-10
The Arthur Krupp Milano company survived until 1974, when it was absorbed by Sambonet
It should be noted that Gio Ponti actively cooperated with Argenteria Krupp from the beginning of the thirties until the beginning of fifties

a LOT of HONEST SELLERS like us are concerned about the Ebay "rating game"
those little stars they ask you ..well those are important as to our seller "scores" .....and if they are judged unfairly ...they harm the excellent reputation that we strived so hard to obtain and retain
2 of those "stars" are affiliated with things that WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER
#1 being shipping costs.....
