|A pair of Georgian silver table spoons by Hester Bateman, the famous female smith who has been called the "Queen of English Silversmiths." London, 1776-1777. Length: 8.25 inches. These are in the Old English pattern with down turned handles engraved with their original family crest of a rising eagle with wings inverted on a mural coronet. These spoons are in excellent condition with no dings, repairs, cracks or wear to the bowls. Hallmarks are clear, including a lion passant (sterling), crowned leopard's head (London assay), lower case date letter 'a' for the year 1776, and HB maker's mark (partially rubbed on one spoon). The engraved crests are fairly worn, commensurate with the age.|
