This is a lovely rare ANTIQUE GEORGIAN solid sterling silver sugar sifting spoon that was made in London, England in 1772, by the illustrious Georgian silversmith, George Smith II at his Huggin Lane workshops.It measures6 1/4" long and is 1 7/8" across itspierced bowl. It weighs33.7 grams -well over 1troy oz. It is in the Old English pattern and is engraved to the handle with a detailed armorial crest.

It is in very good condition with less than the usual light surface scratching than you'd expect for its age and NO splits or distortion and no dings - see photograph - SUPERB. It is hallmarked to the bottom of the stem withGS,lion passant (sterling silver assay mark),leopard head, R - all somewhat distorted due to reforming after assay - showing that it was hallmarked in London in 1772. I have shown the hallmark so that you can make up your own mind. A lovely rare Georgian solid silver sifting spoon in superb condition afterover 240 years and at a very low start!!!! Postage will be 3.50GBP both within the UK and to international destinations.

Please note that the primary postage costs are for second class (or standard parcels service if the postage cost is over 6.00GBP) within the UK or surface mail to international destinations. First class post usually adds 50% to the quoted postage cost while airmail is typically double the cost of surface mail. If you want to know about the timescales and charges by Royal Mail then I suggest you look at http://www.royalmail.com. Please wait for my invoice with postage options that will be sent very soon after the sale finishes!
