This is a lovely Antique Sterling Silver Dessert Spoon from the early 1800s. It would be perfect for using to serve or eat with.
It comes in a gift bag and it would be a great present.
It was made by William Chawner and it was Hallmarked in London in 1823.
The spoon is a fiddle shaped design which was very popular in the Georgian era. It has a pretty etched design at the top of the handle of an arm holding an axe. On the back of the handle it has the maker’s mark and Hallmarks.
The silver is shiny with light scratches. There are a couple of dints to the bowl with one in the centre and one at the edge and these can be seen in the photos.
It weighs 39.1g and measures 18cm in length (just over 7 inches).
