Object Description

A composite set of 11 early English sterling silver spoons in the popular Hanover pattern. Lovely plain style. Each with a hand engraved crest of a dog under a tree. Weight 678 grams, 21.8 troy ounces. Length 20 cms approx. Various dates and makers. 4 spoons by Samuel Robey 1741-1746. 3 spoons by Ebenezer Coker 1753-57. 4 spoons are unreadable.

Object Literature

4 spoons are by Samuel Robey, 3 spoons by Ebenezer Coker and we haven’t identified the maker of the other 4 spoons. Similarly, some date letters are readable but many cannot be deciphered.

Table silver of this date was stamped with “up the handle” silver marks which were punched on the thin central part of the handle and it is not unusual that these stamps are distorted or badly struck and difficult to read.

Object Condition

This rare set of spoons is generally in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Slight variations in size. Good colour and gauge of silver. The hand engraved crests are still crisp. The bowls are in good condition. Most of the marks are a bit rubbed.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
