10 Ebenezer Coker Silver Table Spoons, 1749
Table Spoons (10) - Hanoverian Pattern - London 1749 by Ebenezer Coker - 20.2cm long; 685g combined weight - AB/1782
These are a straight set of ten silver table spoons by the premier spoonmaker of the mid-18th century, Ebenezer Coker.
Formed in the Hanoverian pattern, these high quality spoons have long extended drops to the reverse of the bowls and original engraved crests to the reverse terminals. They each have a good heavy weight and feel really solid in the hand. Sets of six by this sought after maker are scarce and so a set of 10 is a great find, furthermore all the hallmarks are legible and in good order. The condition is excellent throughout with thick bowls tips and just the odd inconsequential ding.
Ebenezer Coker is at the head of a substantial group of specialist silver spoonmakers extending over the next 150+ years who can all trace their skills back to him via master and apprentice relationships.
