Silver and Flatware/Silverware from Norway

Question
I have six silverware teaspoons that I've identified as Nils Hansen Juvel pattern from Norway and stamped 830 on back. Very pretty but are they collectable/valuable?

Answer
Hi, Lynn. I don't believe there is a large market for this pattern but pieces do sell. Here is an example of an actual recent sale: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nils-Hansen-Juvel-3-serving-pieces-Norway-830S-silver-/2 .

The "830" indicates 83% silver content. Sterling is 92.5% silver but 83% is still pretty high.

Hope this helps.
