A fine pair of King George III Sterling silver place spoons by the famous English silversmith Hester Bateman(1709-1794), made in 1783. She is known as the "Queen of Silversmiths" and her silver is prized by collectors. Although she began silversmithing on her own after the death of her husband in 1761 most of the silver she made was between 1774 and 1790 when she retired. These spoons are in excellent condition with no damage or repair, and have only the minor nicks as expected with age and usage. In addition to the full hallmarks the initials JHT are engraved in capital letters, and retain the armorial crests of the first owners. The spoons measure 6.5" in length and weigh as a pair about 2 ounces.
