Set 10 Ocean Liner Teaspoons
Set of 10 vintage hotel ware silver-plated WMF teaspoons, made for Holland & America Line, the cruise liner company
Used on the decks of one of Holland & America's cruise ships, now decommissioned, these well-proportioned beautifully designed teaspoons are a joy to use and once stirred a good cup of tea on the ocean wave. Each is marked WMF and the handle bears the hallmark Holland & America circular crest - the Art Deco stylised prow of a large transatlantic steamship (see image). This is an opportunity to own a little slice of transatlantic ocean liner history.
Country of origin: Europe
Date of manufacture: c.1960
Condition: good, considering their 60 years of service, with a good share of scuffs and light scratch marks, all of which add to their character and reflect their seafaring history. Note: only 6 spoons are pictured.
