Tudor Pattern Basting Spoon, 1853 GA
Basting Spoon - Tudor pattern - London 1853 by George Adams - 30.2cm long; 162g - GV/7762
Tudor pattern is a scarcely found flatware pattern that was made by Chawner & Company in time for the Great Exhibition of 1851 - this 12" long silver spoon bears the design kite mark to the lower part of the stem.
This superb quality basting spoon (aka stuffing, gravy or long-handled serving spoon) has a terrific hefty weight and feels wonderful in the hand. The Tudor pattern decoration remains crisp with an engraved "B" within a garter (suggesting a knighted person) to the front terminal. Made by Chawner & Company and bearing the mark of the owner, George Adams, the condition is first class throughout with a fabulous thick tip to the bowl.
