Reference: S1419
Period: Victorian
Year: 1845
Silversmith: John Williamson
Place: Edinburgh
Price: $ 200.00
Weight: 148 grams
Dimensions: 14.0 cm (teaspoons), 15.0 cm (tongs)
Condition: Excellent, very good tips to all spoons. Tongs also excellent, no damage to bow.

Description: A set of 6 Scottish Fiddle pattern teaspoons, the shape of the Fiddle typically Scottish. They are accompanied by matching sugartongs with shell bowls. The hallmarks on all 7 items are very clear. The punch outline of the JW makers mark is very unusual, having a wave shaped indentation at both sides. The punch shape is identical to unknown maker "AW" who worked between 1828 and 1843, we assume he was John Williamson's father. John Williamson worked between 1845 and 1881, so these are very early examples of his silver.
