Two teaspoon sized Georgian berry spoons. Both have fruit depicted in the bowls with scalloped edges, gold-washing, and engraved handles.

Both of these pieces are hallmarked, although the marks has been rubbed slightly over time. The smaller spoon has the Lion Passant and a makers mark of TW...possibly Thomas Wallis. It most likely dates from the late 1700's.

The slightly larger cousin, dates from 1804, but the maker's mark is too rubbed to identify with any certainty.

The Wallis spoon is just over 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) long and has a monogram on the reverse, in the French fashion (see photo #3). The larger one is 5.25 inches (13.33 cm). Both are in excellent condition. To provide you with some perspective, in one photo is the back of my standard-sized business card 3.5 x 2 inches (8.9 x 5 cm).

SOLD AS A PAIR. Price is for both spoons.

FAQ’s

1. Shipping charge overages in excess of $1.00 are always refunded.

2. The price of these items carefully takes into account a host of factors including: age, maker, scarcity, and especially condition. Many are the only example currently for sale. Please feel free to do some comparison shopping.

3. All items are sold on a first come, first serve basis. If you are really serious about something, but need a bit of time to deliberate, please feel free to ask me to RESERVE it for you. I'm happy to reserve items for up to 24 hours. Simply convo'ing me with questions does not let me know the extent of your interest. Frequently multiple people are simultaneously asking about the same piece.

4. Unless otherwise stated, every item offered by Silver Magpies is sterling silver (i.e 925). If a piece is not sterling it is clearly labelled. Occasionally I offer pieces of silver-plate and silver items made from other standards of silver i.e. 800, 830, 900, 950, etc.

5. Each item offered has been personally hand inspected, researched and cataloged. Every piece is accompanied to its new home by a curator card recording details of provenance, origin and identity in words and photographs.

6. In contrast to other dealers, my pieces are never machine buffed to re-create a mirror-bright shine as Silver Magpies cherishes and celebrates the living finish of silver. Every Silver Magpies piece is carefully hand-polished. Patina, that lovely soft, grey sheen indicative of use and care, is the jewel in the crown of antique and vintage silver’s many charms. Discerning collectors prize patina, and its loss through over-zealous hand or machine polishing is to be lamented.
