A large English George III Sterling silver serving spoon by famed silversmith Hester Bateman(1709-1794), made in 1781. She is known as the "Queen of Silversmiths" and she began working on her own in 1761 after the death of her husband. However, most of her work to be found is from the period of 1774 to her retirement in 1790. Her specialty was flatware but she later expand her work to holloware. This large serving spoon is in very good condition with scuffs, and slight discoloration on the underside of the bowl. However there is no repair or restoration and a good collectible piece. Has clear and complete hallmarks and a monogram in script. Measures 11.5" long and weighs almost 4 ounces.
