MICHELSEN CHRISTMAS SPOONS
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
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
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
