This lovely and very old serving spoon could have graced the dining room of any of Miss Jane Austen’s well-to-do characters. It has a berry motif in the gold-washed interior of the bowl (the wash or gilt is very pale and doesn’t show up in the photos). By its hallmarks (crowned leopard’s head, lion passant, and date letter “N” with “feathers”), it was made in London during 1768-1769. The maker’s mark is a script “BB”. It measures 8-1/2" x 1-3/4", and weighs approximately 56g. Just beautiful! The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling, and insurance within the USA included.
