Straining Spoon - Hanoverian Pattern - London 1734 by Edward Pocock - 29.5cm long; 111g - SJ/1897

Sorry, this item is out of stock.

An outstanding 12" long Hanoverian pattern silver strainer spoon. Edward Pocock appears to have specialised in making basting sized spoons for a variety of purposes. Previously, we have stocked plenty of standard basting, stuffing or gravy spoons and also a very rare marrow spoon of this length, but this is the first time we have encountered a straining spoon of this type and period. It is drilled to one side of the bowl to allow gravy or thin sauces to be strained. It has a fabulous feel in the hand with a superb engraved crest of a stag with monogram. The spoon has good hallmarks and is in excellent condition with a lovely patina.
