Presented is a fabulous old English Georgian sterling silver soup or table spoon. This piece dates to the 1766. The spoon is a good size, well made with a nice thick stem. The end of the handle has a distinctive downward turn. The terminal of the handle is monogrammed with'FAA' in elegant script.
The spoon is in great overall condition. There is some surface wear, but nothing significant, certainly not what you'd expect for a piece that's been around for about 250 years.
There are no splits, no breaks, no monogram removals, and no repairs. This piece is hallmarked on the back of the stem with the lion passant for sterling silver, the leopard's head crowned for the city of London, the date letter L for 1766, and the maker's mark for William Tant.
The spoon is about 8 3/8 inches long. The spoon weighs 70 grams or 2.5 regular ounces. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution. This item is in the category "Antiques\Silver\Non-U. The seller is "robertcharlessilver" and is located in this country: US.This item can be shipped worldwide.
