A pair of Vintage Thorvald Marthinsen Enamel Sterling Silver Demitasse Spoons.

Unfortunately, both spoons do have damage to the enamel, please see photographs. Otherwise, structurally the spoons are sound without any dings, pitting, or dents, and no sign of whatever incident caused the damage to the enamel. I love this pattern, it reminds me very much of a typical 40's & 50's design, with vining leaves overlaid in gold wash scrolling their way down the guilloched stem. Colors did photograph accurately, pastel yellow & aqua, spoons are entirely gold washed (vermeil) which is tarnished and has some light wear, but appears to have held up well over the years. Stamped TH Marthinsen, Sterling, Norway on reverse. Spoons measure approximately 3 7/8 of an inch (9.8cm) long, bowl is 3/4 of an inch (2cm) wide, each spoon weighs in at 6 grams.

I am also a buyer, so I understand all too well how it feels to be overcharged for shipping. For silverware, I'll be shipping first class for $1.50 for individual pieces. Please understand, flatware in general tends to be fairly heavy, so shipping costs will rise with each additional item. As such, it's $1.50 for the first single piece, please add $1.00 for each additional piece, up to 3 pieces. AFTER 3 pieces ($3.50), I switch over to flat-rate priority shipping for $5.00. As flat-rate has no weight limit, from 4 pieces & up the shipping cost will remain at $5.00, no matter how many pieces you choose to purchase, providing it will all fit in the flat-rate package, of course :P Further, all jewelry will ship for free with silverware.

It is not my intent to make profit on shipping. Tfore, any overcharge of shipping exceeding $1.00 will be refunded .


Global Priority Flat-Rate shipping is $5.00 USD, delivery should be expected within 3-6 business days of post. Combined shipping also applies, but please be advised the envelope the US Post Office manufactures for Global flat-rate is much smaller than Domestic flat-rate, so the number of items I can include for combined shipping is limited; further, weight is limited to maximum 4 lbs. If you are an international customer & wish to take advantage of combined shipping, please contact me FIRST to confirm multiple items are manageable at the $5 cost. If not, I will inform you of actual shipping cost.

Because this item is sold used, all sales are final. I've done my best to describe the piece accurately, but I am not a professional jeweler. Of course, if I make a significant mistake in my listings, please contact me first and GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY to correct the problem. Instant negative feedback is not the solution, nor is it appreciated. Any questions, please feel free to email me through the "Ask seller a Question" option.
