This exceptional antique Russian silver mounted coconut ladle has been crafted in the Fiddle pattern.

The anterior surface of the handle terminal is embellished with a contemporary engraved initials 'TS' above simplified tied crossed branches.

The upper portion of the coconut bowl is encircled with an impressive, applied silver border to the rim accented with a band of scalloped decoration.

The reverse surface of this antique coconut ladle is further ornamented with an impressive Russian silver leaf decorated heel; the interior of the bowl is embellished with a secondary applied silver leaf design, conjoined to the heel with a rivot.

Such examples of serving pieces in this combination are usual and rare to the market.

NOTE: Coconut vessels were popular in the late 15th and early 16th centuries as it was believed that the shell of the coconut would act as a natural defence against poison. The shells shape and scarcity of the commodity enabled the wealthy to mount the shells in precious metals to allow them to be used as respectable and highly treasured drinking/serving vessels.
