A pair of heavy solid silver salt or condiment spoons by Samuel Hayne and Dudley Carter hallmarked in London in 1845. In the rare Albert pattern, these spoons are of exceptional quality and in great condition. They both have lovely gold washed or gilded bowls to protect the silver from the corrosive elements in the condiment/salt etc. Excellent set of good clear hall marks on both spoons. Very good gauge silver. There is a dog's or hound's head crest with its ears pricked engraved on the terminal of each spoon. Please see the photographs. We are also listing a set of 8 very slightly larger Albert pattern salt spoons with the same crest by a different maker - Wm Eaton.
York Minster Antiques has clarified that the Pair of Rare Albert Silver Salt Condiment Spoons Ladles (LA333440) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1845
In very good antique condition commensurate with age and light/normal usage. Excellent hallmarks
