Large Hanoverian Rattail pattern Basting Spoon, 1719
Basting Spoon - Large; Hanoverian rattail pattern - London 1719 by Thomas Mann - 34.3cm long; 166g - LK/9911
At 13.5" long, this George I period silver basting spoon is much longer than standard examples. It is an early example of the Hanoverian Rattail pattern and bears a late 18th century crest featuring a stylised fish to the reverse terminal.
The spoon was made in the purer Britannia standard silver and includes the "MA" maker's mark of the largeworker Thomas Mann. This large serving spoon has a very generous bowl and feels great in the hand. It is in excellent original condition with an unworn bowl.
