This is a set of 6 antique Victorian sterling silver apostle spoons and the matching tongs by the maker James Deakin and Sons. Each apostle spoon and the tongs are hallmarked with the crown, lion, date letter e and the maker’s mark JD over WD in a shield (Sheffield, sterling silver, 1897). The spoons and tongs have a twisted handle and the apostles are beautifully detailed on both sides of the spoons.
Each spoon measures 4.5 inches long and the tongs measure 3.5 inches long. The total weight for all 7 pieces is 83 grams. All pieces in excellent and lightly polished condition. Any colour seen in the photos is only reflection during photography because of the shiny silver. I do not have the original box, but perhaps you have one already.
Wonderful antique apostle spoons by a notable maker from England. A great find for a collector of antique spoons.
