Do you guys know anything on Lazarus Posen or where I can get info on these? On the back of each spoon it has a crown with a crescent moon with 800 then another symbol, but I can’t identify it. There are four groups of three of different designs on the handles.
These beautiful and very elaborate Sterling Silver Teaspoons were made by the R. Wallace & Sons Mfg. Co., circa 1910 give or take a couple years. It’s part of a series the company made to celebrate each month and it’s corresponding astrological sign. To have the whole set is great. Individual pieces are selling from $20 to $40 each.:)
It isn’t actually a pattern, as in there are no knives, forks or serving pieces to match.
Several companies, including Gorham, Tiffany, Franklin Mint and A. Michelsen, have made similar sets of collectible spoons.
Some have just zodiac signs, some have just flowers, some have both. These can be found on replacement silver sites by searching “zodiac.”
