A beautiful piece of early Sheffield plate, a large ladle by the Atkin Brothers of England. I believe this is in the Old English pattern, it measures 1 1/2" long and 3 3/8" across the bowl. The ladle has no damage, the hallmarks are as photographed, the group of punched initials HA,EA,FA, dates the ladle to the time of Harry, Edward and Frank Atkin (late Victorian period). This would be beautiful for serving punch or for use with a soup tureen, it came in from the same estate as the Baroque tureen by Wallace that I have listed, and they look beautiful together.

The firm of Akins was started under the name of Thomas Law in mid 18th century, this firmwas succeeded by Henry Atkin and John Oxley trading as Atkin, Oxley & Co. In 1840 Henry Atkin continued the trade as Henry Atkin & Co at 32 Howard Street, Sheffield.

After his death, his brothers Harry Wrigth Atkin, Edward Thomas Atkin and Frank Shaw Atkin continued the business as Atkin Brothers. The firm was converted in 1925 into a limited liability company under the style of Atkin Brothers (Silversmiths) Ltd.
