Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this fine and exquisite pair of early Victorian solid silver tea spoons made by Sebastian Crespell in London, 1842.The pair features a highly ornate and desirable 'naturalistic' design with the entirety of the spoon-shaped as a leaf and branch.
Intricate engravings on the leaf bowls and the realistic form of the stem/branch indicate a high level of craftsmanship and artistry by the silversmith. Upon close inspection, the asymmetric and naturally flowing design is further apparent and is a delightful touch. Not only are these spoons practical for a wide variety of uses from tea to desserts, but are a modest yet discerning addition to any collection or interior decor for a sophisticated and nature-inspired look.
The pair is gilded with a yellowish/lemon hue that has been worn and patinated in a very attractive colour/tone.
A full set of English hallmarks are present on the reverse side of the bowl.
