A fine quality Victorian silver serving spoon for desserts and fruit with an unusual but very practical scooped ladle type shape with large bowl and curved handle. Very decorative with cast detail to the upper side of the shaped handle with fruit including pineapple, berries, oranges and a rather unusual fruit just above the bowl that I can't identify. Further scrolls and ad leaves framing a vacant cartouche. The Bowl is finely engraved with a basket of fruit surrounded with ornate scrolling and swirling foliage. Hallmarked for London 1853, makers mark partially rubbed but almost certainly that of Elizabeth Eaton. A very attractive and incredibly usefully shaped serving piece perfect for serving desserts of all sorts from trifle to tiramisu.
It measures 18.5cm (7 1/4") long, 6.5cm (2 1/2") wide across the bowl and 5.5cm (2 1/8") deep from bowl to handle. It weighs a substantial 110g / 3.5ozt.
The Fancy Fox has clarified that the Unusual Silver Fruit Serving Spoon / Ladle Elizabeth Eaton 1853 (LA358669) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1853
Condition is excellent with no damage, dents or repairs. Very minor handling wear, nothing discernible to the engraving or cast decoration. The maker's mark is partially rubbed because of it's location; the other marks are clear. A further smaller mark has been later struck between the maker's mark and the rest of the hallmarks which appears to be a Z.
