The set that most Shiebler collectors begin with is the multimotif Flora teaspoons. These are relatively easy (by Shiebler standards) to find. Identification of the 12 variations is easy because 1) each handle shape is different, 2) each flower is different and 3) a number 1 through 12 is stamped on the back of the handle. A less common series and more difficult pattern is Month (our choice of name).
All handle shapes are the same and resemble and are confused with the Fiorito pattern. Each month has a distinctive flower. The name of the month is only present near the "X" in the image below in about 60% in our experience. When present it can be very difficult to read because of the shape of the letters and may be missed entirely. We have seen only teaspoons, orange spoons, youth forks and food pushers. In the image, the months are in order with January at the top.
