12 Georgian Silver Teaspoons, 1775 by Thomas Chawner
Teaspoons (12) - London circa 1775 by Thomas Chawner - 12.5cm long; 200g combined weight - UT/2704
These are a remarkable set of twelve Georgian silver teaspoons.
Remarkable in the fact that a dozen examples of this rare form have remained intact as a set and in such fine condition for so long. They date from the mid-1770's and were made by the important specialist flatware maker Thomas Chawner. Each piece is appropriately and clearly marked for small spoons of the period with the lion passant and "TC" maker's mark (with the exception of one spoon that is missing the lion passant).
The spoons are in a very rare and unusual style in having a twisted stem in addition to feather edge decoration around the terminal and the shoulders at the junction with the bowl. They are all in superb condition with good, unworn bowls, an antique patina and crisply struck hallmarks. An absolutely fabulous set of silver spoons!
