Shiebler's Flora pattern is multi-motif with various flowers used on handles. The set had 12 variations and were numbered as such. This set is a matched set meaning it was collected and put together over time. Five various flowers are depicted with one flower repeating once; although, interestingly the two have different backgrounds.
Due to them being collected, the backs have varying monograms. One is a souvenir spoon engraved 'St Augustine, Florida'. Another spoon is engraved 'Alice' while the others are monogrammed 'M.S.D', 'F.M. P. 1891', 'M.J.K. Dec. 25 '91'. One spoon has never been engraved.
These cute spoons are marked with Shiebler's trademark and 'STERLING/ PAT'D. 89'. They are also numbered 1, 4, 6, 7 and two have the number 9. They measure 5.5 inches long, weigh a total 5.95 troy ounces and are in very good antique condition.
