Shell Back Table Spoon, 1753
Table Spoon - Shell-back - London 1753 by Robert Perth - 20.2cm long; 60g - RY/8326
This is a great quality Georgian silver table spoon with a nicely defined shell motif to the reverse of the bowl. It was made by the spoonmaker Robert Pertt (according to Grimwade, also known as Robert Perth). The spoon has many positives: good, unworn bowl, original engraved betrothal triangle to the reverse terminal, clear set of hallmarks and fine condition with a good, antique patina.
A fine example of its type!
