Huge 57cm Straining Spoon, 1814









Details

This is an incredible 22.5" long silver spoon with a beautifully formed wooden handle that has a lovely organic feeling. The quality is outstanding with even the terminal of the handle carved to simulate the pip of Old English pattern. The bowl section is made from a good gauge of silver and half the bowl is crosslet and drill pierced so that it can be used as a strainer serving spoon - ideal for removing unwanted liquid. Undoubtedly made by Eley, Fearn & Chawner as a one-off commission, this great quality spoon is engraved with a double crest surmounted by a ducal coronet to the collar that holds the wooden handle.

 

This really is a massive spoon that would no doubt ably double as a weapon for anyone daring to criticize the food! A stunning piece.
