Offered is a lovely and scarce matched pair of quite early Old English Feather Edge pattern platter spoons or stuffing spoons, each fully hallmarked for London, 1774 and each bearing the maker's mark of noted London silversmith Thomas Chawner. Each server is engraved with an armorial of a dog, perhaps a spaniel of some kind.
This is the earliest matched pair of stuffing spoons that I have come across. These spoons each measure about 12 1/4 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about 208 grams. Condition is very good overall, with only modest tip and surface wear and no splits or repairs. One spoon has a very subtle bump in the bowl that is hard to detect except in a raking light; the other is perfect. Please review all of the pictures. All in all an exceptional pair of Georgian English sterling silver stuffing spoons - ideal for display or for use on special occasions.
