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.
This piece of Georgian silver would be a unique addition to any collection.
Please feel free to contact me if you should have any questions or require additional photos. I make great effort to accurately describe each item listed. Returns are accepted, if either condition, country of origin or dating is significantly incorrect. Please study the photos which show the hallmarks as described.
Return Policy: Remember, the item is an antique. Hence, it will have an expected amount of wear from normal use. I described the condition honestly and as well as I can in detail. Again, if you have questions or would like more photos, ask before offerding. As such, returning an item because I failed to mention the tiniest bit of wear, or barely discernible flaw is not acceptable. Nor do I accept returns based on buyer's remorse. Nor change of taste, or because a buyer did not realize how “big” or "small" the stated dimension really is.
buyers outside of the U.S. must contact me before offerding for shipping cost and must acknowledge that they are responsible for possible custom / import fees.
