Tretårnet sølv

Tretårnet sølv, meaning silver of three towers, is the title of these spoons. The three towers has for a long period been the hallmark of Copenhagen assay office, used to guarentee the content of silver was 830 ppm. Silverplate was hallmarked with two towers only. With theese spoons there is a free choice, two or three towers? Of course the towers are nicked from the 'skyline' of Copenhagen. From left: Børsen, The townhall and Nicolai church.
