EARLY GEORGE III SILVER BASTING SPOON


This is a rare 18th-century (1771) Georgian solid sterling silver basting.

Old English pattern stem - the terminal turned down.

A well proportioned spoon. The bowl measures 9cm x 5cm (3 1/2" x 2") approx.

No monogram, crested with what looks like a lion's head.

A relatively large basting spoon at 12" long.


HALLMARKS: London, STERLING fineness 92.5%

DATE: 1771

DIMENSION: 30.8cm (12") long approx.

WEIGHT: 89g

CONDITION: Good condition for its age without damage. Some hallmarks obscured and appear squeezed, this is caused by the practice of re-hammering the mid stem back to shape if any distortion occured from the stamping of hallmarks on the delicate part of the handle. This practice is common amongst 18th-century silversmiths. The practice became obsolete after the position of the hallmarks moved to the top of stem towards the later part of the 18th-century.
