Basting Spoon - Hook-end - Dublin 1767 by Christopher Skinner - 28cm long; 120g - AG/8387</p>
This is a good, large example of a mid-18th century basting or stuffing spoon made by the top Irish flatware maker of the period - Christopher Skinner. The terminal has a hook-end in the typical Irish fashion for the period and there is a large engraved crest to the front. The spoon has a generous sized bowl and is in fine condition with a clear set of Dublin hallmarks.
