This fruit serving spoon is elegant and beautiful in its repoussee pattern of flowers running down the handle and a round bowl in repoussee fruits. It is fancy and wonderful, and, if you own it, you may find that it has many uses and becomes a favorite in short order. We have two of them available today. It is created in repoussee, and we believe that the pattern is called repoussee, too.
Samuel Kirk and son is now part of Stieff Silver, and this Repoussee pattern was introduced in the late 1880’s. It was in the year 1861 that Samuel Kirk’s two younger sons, Charles and Clarence joined their father and older brother, Henry in the family firm for seven years. Their firm, The House of Samuel Kirk, was well known in Baltimore Maryland as a company that made beautiful sterling silver hollowware and flatware. Mr. Kirk was a silversmith of Quaker ancestry which gave him a strong work ethic and an eye for detail. Both of his parents were silversmiths who were distinguished in their field of work in England.
