Antique French Quality Silver Plate Punch Ladle Societe Anonyme Argental c 1920s
Here we have a very attractive and usable antique French silver plated punch ladle dating from the 1920s The handle has a central twisted section and the top has bright cut feathering on the front and back edges.
The ladle is marked Argental and has the number 49 which I understand is the grade of silver plate. There is also a Halberd mark which relates to Societe Anonyme Argental, a French company that was first registered in 1921.
The ladle has a very elegant shape and is approx 12 inches (30 cm) long. The bowl is 2 1/4 inches in diameter and has a spout at the side.
It weighs 79g unpacked and is in good antique used condition with just a few very minor surface scratches commensurate with age and use.
This would make a wonderful addition to any collection of silver plated ladles or French silver plate and a very decorative item for display and use.
