Offered is a lovely set of 19th Century French silver tea or coffee spoons by Paris silversmith François Pamphile Josan; these date to the post-1838 period. The gilding on each spoon is strong, and the design is nicely struck. Each spoon bears Josan's maker's mark and a fineness mark, perhaps for second standard (800/1000 fineness). These spoons are nicely decorated and have no engraved initials or crests, or any sign of erasure.

These spoons measure about six inches in length, and the set weighs a total of about 108 grams. Condition is good overall, with minor signs of use but with no dents, splits or repairs. There is little to no wear to the gilding. These would be excellent for either display or use.
