Venus, the goddess of love, is a pattern introduced by International Silver in 1901. And, it is a pattern worthy a goddess with a rich detail on the edge of the terminal ending with a flourish at the top of the stem. A plain stem is embellished with a nice small flourish just before the shoulder. Each piece is treated differently after that. The Sugar Spoon has rich detail on the shoulder that follows onto the back of the bowl, while the other pieces have a rich detail on the edge of the bowl. Whatever the treatment, this is a beautiful pattern, very typical of the times.
