Rare Cape Silver twisted stem teaspoon
Reference: S1190

Year: Circa 1860
Silversmith: Jacobus Johannes Vos
Place: Cape
Price: $ 220.00
Weight: 20 grams

Description: A rare Cape twisted stem teaspoon, with spearhead handle and typical Cape floral engraving, and clear hallmarks. It is very similar to those made by Jan Byleveld circa 1820, so we can only assume it was made by Vos to match an earlier one made by Byleveld. Vos worked from 127 Long Street for 8 years, before dying at the young age of 27. He was one of the last working Cape silversmiths.
