19th century coin silver spoons from the collection of Vito Giallo — 91 year old artist, antiques dealer, and quintessential New Yorker. Vito learned the antiques trade in the 1950s, and was in the trade for 50 years until his retirement. He sold to the who’s who of New York from his shop at 966 Madison Avenue.
Ten of a kind, sold individually - some are engraved, some are not. We did not polish the spoons as we love the patina of time, but shine up they will! Vito says: food was mostly eaten with spoons. Forks came from Italy in the early 18th century, so spoons were very important.
In honor of our collaboration with Vito, the Catbird Giving Fund is proud to make a donation of $10,000 to SAGE, a national advocacy and services organization in their mission to look out for LGBTQ+ elders.
