hello... I have a 7 Gold Spoons marked T & CO STG. THey are monogramed in the spoon part 1874-1924 with a C. I know the monogram stands for Anne Cunningham, who was the Grand Daughter of General Pershing. These have a flowers on the tops, and each are different.

Can anyone help me out, with what these are? This is a part of a Whole case of silver that I found while going thru my decesed husbands things.... even a web site recomendation of how to figure out what I have would be of great help.. THANKS!

It sounds as if your spoons are seven of the twelve demitasse spoons Tiffany made in a not-full-line pattern called "Floral." Each is 3 15/16 to 4 1/8 inches long. They are marked T. & Co. / STG. See the book by Hood, Berlin and Wawrynek, Tiffany Silver Flatware, 1845-1905: When Dining Was an Art (Woodbridge, Suffolk: Antique Collectors' Club, 2000; reprinted 2003) for a picture (p. 266, Fig. 393). The caption identifies each flower in the set. Most of these spoons have gilding limited to the bowls. I gather that your spoons are totally gilded, which is unusual. I happened to see such a set recently in the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, and it was quite beautiful.
