Lovely sterling silver English stuffing spoon in the Old English pattern. This spoon is in excellent condition with no apparent monogram removals. The hallmarks are nice and crisp given its age. The spoon has no dings or dents. It measures approximately 11" long and weighs 2.98 troy ounces. It is fully marked for London, 1785 as follows, from left to right:
1. Duty mark: George III's head. This is a rarer left-facing duty mark used from December 1784 until 1786.
2. Date letter: k for the year 1785
3. Lion Hallmark which verifies it's made of Sterling Silver
4. Crowned Leopard's head for London
5. Maker's Mark: RC in a cartouche. The RC stands for Richard Crossley, a well-known maker, who registered his mark in London in 1782. So, this is one of his earlier pieces.
Overall, a wonderful example of an 18th English stuffing spoon.
