This exquisite silver spoon is crowned with the historic crest of St Petersburg. The golden scepter against the scarlet field of the escutcheon indicates the status of capital city. The azure St Andrew ribbon and the crossed anchors demonstrate the significance of Petersburg as the capital of the Russian navy. Finally, the Great Imperial Crown above the shield testifies that St Petersburg is part of the great Russian Empire. The coat of arms is executed using a complex technique of coloured enamel. Collectors of such rarities will recognise the value of this delicate work and the characteristically restrained design of the Petersburg jewelry tradition. This spoon would make an ideal “business” souvenir for colleagues and partners.
