Sorry, this item is out of stock.

This is a fabulous quality and extremely rare example of a commemorative silver sugar sifter spoon made to celebrate the life of the Duke of Wellington. This figural spoon has a bust of the Iron Duke to the terminal above an array of military arms which in turn are above an engraved family crest. The gilt bowl is simply stunning and the hallmarks for George Adams of Chawner & Company are located to the reverse. Excellent condition throughout.
