Omar Ramsden Spoon, 1927
Spoon - Tudor Rose - London 1927 by Omar Ramsden - 15.7cm long; 43g - TJ/5129b
Omar Ramsden produced a range of spoons measuring just over 6" long that were ideal gifts as jam spoons or children's Christening spoons. They each featured a different design to the terminal and this example shows a Tudor Rose among thorny tendrils. The stem and reverse of the bowl retains the spot hammer marks that is a signature of the Arts & Crafts movement. The spoon has a good feeling of quality in the hand and remains in first class condition with clear hallmarks for the most important British silversmith of the 20th century.
