Item: Basting Spoon Description: Old English pattern
Hallmark: London 1791 by Peter & Jonathan Bateman Dimensions: 292mm long;
Comments: A good quality basting
spoon with the rare PB/IB maker's mark. The spoon is in fine original
condition with a good bowl and no engravings.
*When Hester Bateman retired in 1790, her two sons took over
the running of the family business. The partnership was short-lived due to
the untimely death of Jonathan. The marks were only in use between 7th
December 1790 and 2nd May 1791 and therefore items bearing this
rare mark are highly collectable.
