Fabulous antique English Georgian or Charles X (in France) era 13.5" sterling silver wine or punch ladle with 1774 London hallmarks, scalloped bordering and unique spiraled genuine horn handle! An exceptional piece and imagine my surprise when the date mark ended up being for 1774! I haven't been able to positively identify the silversmith mark but it appears to read "CE" or "CM" (all hallmarks are in the base of the ladle bowl itself). The handle is another wonderful aspect, in genuine pressed horn with spiral running half the length. Long, slender and relatively delicate looking but no breaks or repairs to note. A magnificent piece, one you'll love to own and use!
Very good condition. No damage or repairs that I can see, amazing considering the delicate nature and age of the piece. A faint dimple or two to the silver but no large dents. See pictures for measurements.
