Georgian sterling silver table spoon in the very scarce Onslow or Scroll pattern. London, c.1765, maker's mark rubbed. Size: 8 1/8 inches length. Bowl in excellent condition with no dings or wear to the tip of the bowl. A family armorial with a Baron's coronet is engraved on the reverse of the handle. The cast scroll finial is attached to the stem with a scarf joint as was the practice on genuine examples of the period in this pattern. Weight: 1.88 troy ounces. The hallmarks are worn, with the date letter believed to be that for the year 1765. The lion passant sterling mark and crowned leopard's head town mark for London are legible. The maker's mark is illegible. 18th century spoons in this pattern are very rare and much sought after. Other examples bearing the same armorial are available.
