Alt-Spaten stands out with almost horizontal shoulders and an elongated handle. This handle design evolved from a classic early 18th century style. The expressive shaping of the shoulders at the top of the stem is particularly artistic. These shoulders are handcrafted one by one. This kind of detail is typical of Robbe & Berking and reflects the expertise of the legendary master craftsmen. Many consider Alt-Spaten to be the epitome of classic silver cutlery.
