Description

Produced and used in the mid 18th century, these spoons were designed to clear the dust off (and strain) the large tea leaves of the time. The purpose of the pointed stem was to clear the teapot spout.

The hallmarks are small and difficult to decipher. The Assay Office mark is almost certainly that for Chester.

A lovely example of a solid sterling silver mote spoon.
