This is a beautiful Antique early Georgian Sterling Silver Dessert Spoon from the 1700s. It would be perfect for using to eat or serve desserts.

It comes in a gift bag and would be a very special present for a birthday or anniversary.

It’s a very pretty design with a tapered handle and a motif featuring a hand holding a bunch of holly at the end. The bowl is narrower than a lot of dessert spoons but is also deeper so it easily holds a dessert spoon serving.

The spoon is Irish in origin and is made of Sterling Silver. It was hallmarked in Dublin in 1788 and was made by John Shiels. The hallmarks and maker’s mark on the back of the handle.

It’s in very good condition with the Silver shiny. There’s a little tarnish in places and one very tiny dent to the bowl which can only be seen if you are examining it closely.

It weighs 26g and measures 17.1cm in length (6 3/4 inches).
