This is a lovely rare Georgian Irish solid sterling silver tea or coffee spoon, which was made in Dublin, Ireland in about 1810, by the illustrious Irish silversmith, Richard Sawyer. It is in the FIDDLE pattern with soft or French shoulders. It is engraved to the handle with E over I*B. It is 5 3/8" long and 1" across its bowl. This piece of cutlery weighs16.1 grams -over 1/2troy oz.
It is in pretty good condition for its age with the usual surface scratching that you'd expect for its age and NO splits or dents, a little distortion- with the usual dimpling to the bowl and the usual wear to the leading edge - SUPER. It is hallmarked on the reverse of the handle with R.S, George III duty mark, Hibernia mark, crowned harp standard mark (Irish sterling silver assay mark) showing that it was hallmarked in Dublin in about 1810. I have shown the hallmark so that you can make up your own mind. A rare Georgian IRISH tea spoon afterover 200 years. Postage will be FREE both within the UK and to international destinations.
