Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this exquisite Georgian pair of Georgian solid silver salt spoons made by Thomas Harper II in London, 1806.The pair features a wonderful Rococo-revival style with the handles being decorated with an entwining dolphin and a shell-shaped scoop.
Made from a very good gauge of silver, despite its small size the pair has a good weight in the hand and is the perfect length to compliment a wide variety of salt cellars. Due to their ornate and fine design, the spoons are collectible in their own right, even better yet with a complimenting set of salts with a Rococo-style and nautical theme.We have been very fortunate to acquire a pair of Georgian silver shell salts (photographed together) which hopefully conveys the delight of collecting silverware of similar style and period. Featuring a unique nautical theme, it is very fitting to its original intended use as salt spoons. In the modern day, it is perhaps equally wonderful to come up with creative uses such as a small coffee spoon or to use as a caviar spoon.
The bowls are silver-gilt providing a layer of protection for the silver from tarnishing with whatever may be held within. Both salt spoons are hallmarked with English marks on the reverse side of the bowl.
