Hi,

just to let you know that in our family's heritage i found  a box of  6 spoons by F. Ehrenfeld Frankfurt a-M zeil 102-104 that seem to be almost identical to Stephanie's.



The only difference appears to be in the engravings on the back of the spoon.

Although having been sold as a set and looking identical their engravings differ.

3 are engraved with "ALPACCA", the other 3 with NEUSILBER and in an inner circle the initials E.F.S.

I am the Great-Great Granddaughter of the F. Ehrenfeld family and I have been researching our family history and came upon this post. I would be very interested in seeing what the box and flat wear look like. Is it possible for you to send me a photograph? I would really appreciate it a lot. I can also tell you a bit of history if you were interested. Sincerely, Sally

Hi,

I only came upon this page with my  answer from 2010 by chance. Obviously I would be ready to send photographs of the box and spoons to Sally.

Could you please forward her address to me?
