I really enjoy the repousse work on these berry spoons. Repousse is the most advanced of the silversmiths' skills as they must work from the reverse of the object and push the metal forward into the desired shape. Then they turn the object over and spend a significant amount of time chasing and engraving  the design. Needless to say, this requires years of practice to get it right.

I took some macro photographs of these berry spoon bowls and am just picturing them without comment. Compare and contrast.
