This is an early example 18th-century (1771) Georgian sterling silver basting.
Old English pattern handle.
A nice proportioned spoon. The bowl measures 9cm x 5cm (3 1/2" x 2").
No monogram, crested with a lion's head.
A relatively large basting spoon at 12" long.
HALLMARKS: London, SILVER fineness 925.
DIMENSION: 30.8cm (12") long approx.
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 occurred 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 the stem towards the later part of the 18th-century.
