It was a fad in the nineteenth century to take earlier, plain silver serving pieces and rework them in an ornate style.
This spoon was originally made in 1783-84, and its simple Hanoverian style was modified with an engraved handle and repousse fruit design in the bowl, the layered with a thin gold wash over all.
Hallmarked for year (1783-4) and original maker (George Smith).
Size: Approximately 8.75" long. Weight: 70 grams (2.24 troy ounces)
Estate silver will be in used condition, but I will take care to note any defects or condition problems arising from heavy use or abuse.
