Item: Dessert Spoon Description: Dog Nose
Hallmark: Circa 1720 by "ID" over "P" ? Dimensions: 170mm; 39grams
rare example of a Queen Anne period dog nose dessert spoon. It was circa
1700 that a separate spoon for puddings and dessert was being introduced
in to the UK, so this is a particularly early example. The spoon is in great overall condition with a late 18th C
crest to the reverse terminal.
The spoon is marked with just a maker's mark, which appears to be "H", "I"
"M" or "N", with a "D" over a "P"?
We have not been able to discover the owner of this mark and would suggest
a provincial maker is likely in view of the maker's mark not being New
Standard marks, therefore post-dating this spoon after 1720. Channel
