Have you ever dreamed that you were an important yacht club member? Or have you ever wished you were a member of a yacht club filled with Europe’s best known royals? Well, we cannot exactly help you gain entry, but we CAN help you eat LIKE a Kaiserlicher Yacht Club royal. It was founded in 1887 as a yacht club, then Kaiser Wilhelm II became its Kommodore in 1891 and its name was changed to the Kaiserlicher Yacht Club. Many of Germany’s royals, nobles, and captains of industry, including Alfred Krupp, were members. Members of the club were included in both Germany’s Army and Navy, and more than 400 of them died during WW I.
Our offering is two fairly large soup spoons. The club’s logo appears on their handles. On the reverse are two hallmarks for their manufacturer. I see no silver hallmarks. That said, the spoons have a marvelous patina. I am almost tempted to enjoy a steaming cup of tomato soup with one!
