Antique, Old English Fiddle pattern, Mustard Spoon with a gilded bowl.
Measuring approximately 120 mm (4 3/4") long with the bowl measuring approximately 21 mm (13/16" wide) and weighing approximately 10.28 grams. This is a really nice example in great condition and even shows the planishing marks form when the spoon was made under the right lighting and magnification. The handle is engraved with a script H with flourish.
Hallmarks for Exeter, 1853, John Stone.
All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand-new piece. Some minor scratches are normal. All vintage pieces I sell have been thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished when required. If repairs are needed before it's offered for sale, they are completed sympathetically.
Thank you for looking and please have a look around the other items in my shop.
