Description: Lovely Art Deco soup ladle in 800 silver, of exceptionally good quality and gauge.This ladle is truly a pleasure to hold and use (as long as you have strong wrists!). Wilkens & Son were one of the "big 3" German silver producers, and were highly regarded. The hallmark consists of the Wilkens makers mark bracketed by the letters MC, standing for Michelangelo Clementi & Cie of Bologna, Italy. Wilkens & Son entered into a strategic partnership with Michelangelo Clementi in 1912. The makers mark is alongside the 800 purity mark. Another mark is present, but it is worn/poorly struck, so not legible. Clementi Fabbrica Argenteria still exists today, manufacturing Buccellati
