This beautiful , Victorian sterling silver spoon bears full English hallmarks for the date 1854. I would classify it as a dessert spoon . It is clearly very special as it comes in its own fitted box.
The spoon is 6 and ¾” (17.3cms) long and 1 an 3/8” (3.5cms) across the widest part of the bowl. The spoon weighs 33 grams.
The stem of the spoon is engraved with ivy leaves. The top bears a monogram in an oval ‘JJ’ is script. The elongated bowl is plain.
The reverse is lavishly engraved with ivy leaves, The top bears the hallmarks. They start with the maker ‘H&T’ which I cannot identify. Next comes the lion passant for sterling silver, the leopard’s head for the London assay office, the date letter ‘T’ for 1854 and finally the head of Queen Victoria.
It rests in its fitted , red velvet bed and opposite the interior lid is in padded cream silk .
The dark red leather covered box has gold tooling around the edge. It is closed with a secure latch.
The spoon is in excellent antique condition and the box is in great condition too. It will come to you very carefully protected.
