Description: A sterling silver caviar spoon, with handle realistically modelled as a sturgeon, made by leading silversmith Sarah Jones. This a a cast spoon, good weight and has a lovely feel in the hand, the grip enhanced with all the detail on the sturgeon, we love this spoon! The hallmarks are excellent, well struck and clear on the back of the bowl. Sarah Jones is one of the 50 leading silversmiths profiled in the book "Designer British Silver, 1930-1985", by Andrew & Styles, a book which we highly recommend. "Her work is quirky and amusing, she is a superb modeller who produces charming animal studies. Her work is in the Royal Collection, a flower study is on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's dresser table (pages 266-271). This caviar spoon is a great example of her work, it may be a once off made on commission, as we have not encountered another example, much of her past and current work can be seen on her website www.sarahjonessilver.co.uk.
