This elegant English Georgian sterling silver spoon was made in London in 1784 and designed for serving stuffing or for basting. Accordingly, the spoon is quite long and has a large bowl. The piece has a threaded fiddle back handle and stem while the bowl has a pattern back which features a repeating reeded design.

The spoon is in excellent condition with no removals or repairs and has acquired a lovely patina with light scratching incurred over the past 230+ years. The verso of the handle bears crisp, well struck marks including the lion passant, crowned leopard's head indicating the London Assay Office, and date letter "i" in a shield-shaped cartouche signifying a production date of 1784. The piece also includes a mark resembling that of silversmith James Darquits Jr, who was active in London at that time.

The piece measures 11.75" in length while the bowl is 3" by 1.75" at its widest point. The spoon weighs in at 130 grams.

This sterling silver spoon displays beautifully and would be a wonderful addition to a collection of Georgian silver. A lovely and useful piece.
