Description: A rare Indian Colonial sugar sifter spoon, made by Hamilton & Co, the "Garrards of India". The spoon is in the Fiddle, Thread and Shell pattern, and is double struck, and is pleasing quality, and in excellent condition. The hallmarks are clear, makers mark H&Co, Elephant, date letter A and circle tally mark, these marks were used 1860-1914 (source www.ascasonline.org, History and Marks of Hamilton & Co). Note the unusual & (quite fat), different makers marks were used by Hamilton over the years, this should assist more precise dating, further research is required.
