Rare Silver Onslow pattern Tablespoons (6)
Reference: S1178
Period: George III
Year: 1781, 1787, 1804
Silversmith: Thomas Tookey (2, 1781), Smith and Fearn (1, 1787) and Steven Adams II (3, 1804)
Place: London
Price: $ 230.00
Weight: 420 grams
Dimensions: 21cm
Condition: Excellent, no wear. The 3 1804 spoons have been converted to Onslow from Old English, probably circa 1880. One spoon has a small dent on bowl.

Description: A good associated set of Onslow Tablespoons, of good gauge and with good ends, very pleasing to use. The 3 oldest spoons are original Onslow, and have the owners initials L+D scratch engraved on them. The 3 later spoons were converted in late Victorian times, a common practice (Ian Pickford comments in his excellent Flatware book that most Onslow pattern flatware that exists today is converted). A very faint butt joint can be detected on close examination with a loop, but is so faint it cannot be seen by the naked eye and is not visible in photographs. The hallmarks are all clear, the Adams spoons have an indented duty mark.
