Irish Hook-end Basting Spoon, 1765
Basting Spoon - Hook-end - Dublin 1765 by David Peter - 28.8cm long; 96g - KS/2351
This is an excellent example of a mid-18th century Irish hook end silver basting spoon. It bears a very prominent engraved crest of a lion rampant to the front terminal and has a crisp set of hallmarks to the reverse, including the script maker's mark for David Peter (Bennett ref. 108). Fine all round condition and good patina.
