English silver espresso spoons, early “bean end spoons”
Four English silver spoons, the shafts with little coffee beans made of dark brown wood. The “bean end” design appeared already in the late 1800’s, in the Arts and Crafts period. There are coffee pots and other coffee utensils related to Christopher Dresser with coffee beans on (like the pots in pic 1), but it has not yet been proved that he was behind the idea of using the coffee bean as a design motif. These spoons have silver hall marks for Birmingham 1895. Length "3 ¾ / 9,5 cm. One spoon would need some glue to have its bean fixed. As for the pots / jugs: please see separate heading
