Up for sale without a reserve:
RARE AND LARGE GEORGIAN STERLING SILVER STRAINING SPOON,
CHRISTOPHER AND THOMAS BARKER, LONDON, 1801.
I am quite pleased to offer this fine heavy weight Georgian
sterling silver straining serving spoon made by Christopher and Thomas Barker
of London in 1801. This form of
straining spoon is much harder to find compared to the typical strainer to the
center of the bowl form. This spoon has
a beautiful deer crest to the top front of the handle.
This fine spoon is approximately 11.75 inches in length and
the bowl measures approximately 3.75 inches in length and a width of 2 1/8
inches. The approximate weight of the
spoon is 145 grams.
The piece is fully hallmarked as shown in the photo. Hallmarks are located on the back of the
upper handle region and are: lion head
for London, date letter “F” for 1801, maker’s mark for Christopher and Thomas
Barker, lion passant for sterling and
the Georgian tax mark. Please view
photos to verify the hallmarks.
Condition: The piece
is in excellent condition with the normal light surface scratches and minor
dings consistent with its age. The
spoon’s bowl is in excellent shape with no thinning of the edges. The spoon has no sign/evidence of any crest
removals. No evidence of repairs and
there are no pin holes or splits. Again,
the overall condition is excellent.
Please view and study the photos since they represent the piece well.

stated dimension really is.
