Set of 6 Hester Bateman Silver Table Spoons, 1790
Table Spoons (6) - Old English Pattern - London 1790 by Hester Bateman - 22.2cm long; 407g combined weight - SQ/3236
Hester Bateman silver table spoons are always highly sought after, so it is particularly pleasing to find an excellent, straight set of six.
Each of these George III period Old English pattern table spoons is engraved to the front terminal with a crest. The hallmarks, including the all important "HB" maker's mark, are in great condition and show that the spoons date from the final year of Hester Bateman running her workshop as she retired on December 7th 1790 - these spoons therefore dating between May (the start of the "p" date letter cycle) and December of that year.
These elegant, antique Hester Bateman table spoons remain in fine condition.
