Grecian Pattern Runcible Spoon, 1875







Details

This is a very rare example of an antique silver runcible spoon (aka pickle or chutney spoon or spork) in the attractive Grecian pattern. It was made the premier specialist flatware makers of the 19th Century - Chawner & Company (under the leadership of George Adams). This spoon is in excellent original condition with the additional benefit of having neither engravings nor removals.

 

The runcible spoon appears in two works by Edward Lear: The Owl & The Pussy Cat ("They dined on mince and slices of quince, which they ate with a runcible spoon") and Twenty-Six Nonsense Rhymes and Pictures ("The Dolomphious Duck, who caught Spotted Frogs for her dinner with a Runcible Spoon").
