Fine Things 4 sale - Family parts with a few treasures... This year we empty a family storage locker of things. Sterling and Silverplate items listed. In this listing we have.The rare traditional --- Cafe Royale or Cafe Brulot or _____ Spoon. A very special solid sterling silver brandy or cognac spoon, fully hallmarked Sterling. 4 1/2 INCHES LONG INCLUDING THE PRONGS. NOT SURE OF THE AGE OR MAKER. SHIELD WITH " R " LION ON THE RIGHT. More rare to find -- super elegant -- simple clean pattern that works with any china / flatware you might own, it is a hefty little spoon scalloped edge, matches or blends with many flatware / china patterns - or so said my mother. This antique solid sterling silver spoon filled with congac was warmed over a candle then poured into the demitasse cup of coffee, used very rarely, with the typical and expected very minor use scratches not a dent or ding (see photos).
Place sugar cube in the brandy / cognac spoon. Pour good cognac or brandy over sugar cube, warm cognac in spoon by heating from beneath, if desired, ignite warmed cognac and allow alcohol burn off - the sugar cube will melt and caramelize. When flame subsides, stir into your coffee. Add orange rind twist and it is a taste of Italy...
