Pair of Georgian Sterling Silver and Gilt Fruit Serving Spoons
Product Code: SMS7075
This ornate pair of spoons are in excellent condition. The bowls of the spoons are and the handles are engraved with leaves and fruit.
Jonathan Hayne was apprenticed to Thomas Wallis in 1796, was free from that contract in 1804. He died in 1848. So judging from the maker’s mark, the chubby head of King George and the date letter U, 1815 has to be the date it was assayed.
The Georgian period produced many plain, stylish pieces of silver flatware. As it got closer to the Victorian era, the style became a little more fancy, and these spoons are an interesting example of that.
Hallmarked: Made by Thomas Wallis and Jonathan Hayne in London in 1815.
