Very nice Imperial Russian enameled silver salt spoon by Gustav Klingert. The allover turquoise decoration with silver tracery and opaque white bead border is a decorative style extensively used by Klingert. The design is, in effect, a signature style. The handle is twisted and terminates in an enameled “crown” type finial. The bowl retains its original gilding. The handle is fully hallmarked for Moscow, pre-1899, and for Klingert.
