Anton Michelsen established his workship in 1841 and soon became the Crown Jeweller to the Royal court (1848)

The first Christmas spoon was made in 1910 in the dominant Art Nouveau style.
Each year a unique and beautiful spoon was created in whatever style was prevailing at that point in time.

I once had the opportunity to see the entire collection exhibition of these spoons. It was very large and  impressive.

In some cases, forks were also made

These Michelsen creations were not Christmas spoons, but they are in the same style.
I find the beautifully enameled Sami standing in front of the globe to be an iconic image
