A rare and elegant boxed set of six sterling silver citrus spoons in Paye & Baker's "Orange" pattern. The handles are decorated front and back with oranges, orange blossoms and foliage. Paye & Baker primarily made souvenir spoons, and this particular pattern was usually associated with Los Angeles, considered a very exotic location at the beginning of the 20th century. These spoons are the only set we've seen made as citrus spoons. The sharply-pointed deep bowls retain their original matte gilding. Each spoon is fully hallmarked.
- Origin: America, ca. 1900.
- Dimensions: spoons, 5 1/2" long.
- Weight: 158.4 grams.
- Condition: excellent; gilding intact; box has considerable age-appropriate wear and discoloration.
