An Austro Hungarian silver punch ladle with a wood handle circa 1850. The ladle has a double lipped fluted bowl. This style of punch ladle became popular in the mid-18th century. The wood handle has a painted black band with a partially worn painted gold design.

Punch is always associated with England and was usually made from rum or brandy, sugar, citrus fruit, spices (normally grated nutmeg) and water. The high point for popularity came in the mid-18th. Century. It was still being served in the 19th Century. The popularity of the drink created the need for punch bowls, ladles, goblets, orange/lemon strainers, label for bottles, goblets and more. For wealthy Georgians silver was the choice of materials.

Austro-Hungarian silver, marked with 13 (loth) indicating a fineness of .812 silver. Using Tardy’s reference book, I read the mark for the year 1845. There is another mark which is being researched.

I have acquired several ladles from a West Coast collection and will be listing them this week. Please use the search function for my shop to view the others.

Measurements; 12” long, bowl 4 ½” wide, weight 167 grams

Condition Report, several small dings and surface scratches in accordance with age and use. Possible repair to back of bowl and handle.
