Reference: S1459
Period: George III
Year: 1810-1825
Silversmith: Daniel Collinet
Place: Cape
Price: $ 300.00
Weight: 107 grams
Dimensions: 21.4 cm, 21.7 cm
Condition: Good, but both spoons have worn tips from use. Scratches to bowls, small dent to side of one bowl.

Description: A set of 2 Cape silver Fiddle pattern tablespoons, by a lesser known Cape silversmith whose work does not appear very often. The spoons are a slightly different length (being handmade) and have similar but different hallmarks, so they were probably made at different times. Both have makers mark DC in between two floral or star devices, but both the makers mark and devices have differences, indicating they were struck by different punches. One DC makers mark has separate DC, the other DC appears to be cojoined. The floral or star device was used by a number of Cape silversmiths, including Beets, Hockly, Lotter, Townsend, Twentyman and Vos. The makers mark DC between 2 stars is depicted in Heller's Cape Silver Vol 2 (pg 122), where it is shown as mark NMM15.
