Description: A Cape silver Fiddle pattern tablespoon, with a rare makers mark. The spoon has engraved initials CJP, these are original and Colonial, the P slants at an angle. The hallmarks are excellent, makers mark DH in serrated punch, surrounded by 2 circular punch devices, Welz mark 56. The serrated edge was not shown by Welz, but it is shown by Heller Vol II, page 122, mark NMM 19. This is significant as no other Cape silversmith used a serrated edge punch. Daniel Hockly is one of the few Cape silversmiths trained prior to arrival in the Cape, whose work is known from both areas. Hockly trained in London, was registered as a smallworker in 1810, and is known for high quality wine labels (Grimwade mark 470, 473, page 548). He emigrated to the Cape in 1819, one of the "1820 Settlers", he arrived in Algoa Bay (now Port Elizabeth) in 1820 on board the SS Chapman, with 256 other settlers, his wife Elizabeth and 3 children, their 4th child Fanny Chapman was born onboard. The family remained in the Eastern Cape, spending time in Grahamstown, Uitenhage, Cradock and Graaff-Reinet (where Hockly died in 1835, buried in the old Dutch Reformed cemetery). Elizabeth Hockly founded the first school in Crradock. (Source - Further Researches in Cape Silver, David Heller, pages 61-62). Daniel Hockly is pictured in the book Cape Silver & Silversmiths by Welz, page 19, one of the few Cape silversmiths whose image is known today. Note - see item S1512 to view wine labels made by Hockly in London 1810.
