Here is a beautiful set of 12 Zodiac spoons, manufactured by the Franklin Mint in 1972, one spoon for each of the Zodiac signs of Pisces, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Gemini, Aquarius, Aries, Sagittarius, Taurus, and Cancer. This is the signature edition, which has the signature of the designer on the back, and each spoon is Sterling Silver plated with Gold. On the back of each spoon is the Franklin Mint emblem, and the word "VERMEIL".
(Vermeil is defined as sterling silver covered in a layer of gold that's at least 10 karats and 1.5 microns thick; this is a higher quality than normally found gold plating). Spoons measure 5 1/4 long each, and weigh 28 to nearly 30 grams each; I weighed each spoon and came up with a total weight of 344.13 grams for this set; which is 11.065 troy ounces of gold plated sterling silver. References indicate only 1,229 sets of this version were produced. I do NOT have the original COA or paperwork that went with this set.This will make a nice addition to your collection.
