This pretty vintage set of six silver-plated ice-cream spoons is not French but English. However, it is a Louis XVI style model called "Ruban" (ribbon). In my opinion, ice creams are even better when they are served with fine silverware.
Mid 20th century
Style: Louis XVI
Louis XVI, who reigned from 1774 to 1789, is remembered as the last absolute monarch. The French Revolution of 1789 overthrew the monarchy by divine right and Louis XVI was guillotined on January 21st 1793.
The Louis XVI style is classical, inspired by Antiquity, the shapes are geometric, the legs of the furniture are straight and light, often fluted. However, under the influence of Marie-Antoinette, the ornaments are enriched with musical and rural attributes, ribbon bows giving a delicate touch to the furniture.
