Serrated edges and a twisted stem impart an organic quality to this spoon created by silversmith Marius Hammer. A contemporary of Fabergé, he worked in Bergen, Norway from 1847 to 1927 and was renowned for his enamel work. Hammer’s mastery of plique-à-jour, a filigree technique that allows light to shine through enamel for an effect similar to that of stained glass, is evident throughout the vividly colored bowl of the spoon.
