Set of 4 Georgian Miniature Silver Spoons, 1814
Miniature Spoons (4) - Old English Pattern - London 1814 by Eley & Fearn - 8.7cm long; 26g combined weight - FP/2575
Eley & Fearn were the most important silver flatware makers of the late Georgian period and among their magnificent repertoire of spoons, forks and servers, but rarely seen, was the humble miniature spoon. Here we have a set of four such tiny spoons that would likely been used as a doll's toy by a child to replicate those used by the grown-ups.
The spoons are in the prevalent pattern of the day and bear a script engraved letter "H" to their old English pattern terminals. They are appropriately hallmarked to the reverse side and include the WE/WF mark of their makers. The spoons have a good antique patina and are in fine condition.
