Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this pair of Georgian silver berry spoons made by famous makers Peter & Ann Bateman in London,1796.
The bowl of the spoon is fully gilt and features a finely stippled background with elegant scrolls encompassing the three currants in the middle of the spoon.
The gilding not only adds to the aesthetic beauty but further has a practical usage - the gold layer prevents the fruits' acidity from reacting and tarnishing the silver.
The handle of both spoons have a vacant cartouche and the surroundings feature an engraved pattern along the stem.
The spoons come with a fitted box ideal for display or storage.
Hallmarks are fully present with the maker, date, Georgian head, silver passant and town assay mark. Note: The hallmarks are rubbed and the maker's mark can be difficult to identify.
A great pair of chased Georgian berry spoons made by one of the finest silversmiths of the Georgian era.
