Description: An interesting pair of Victorian silver serving spoons, with very ornate cast handles, topped with a harvest maiden, holding wheat sheaves and what appears to be a cauliflower? The bowls have an unusual rectangular shape, and a small rat-tail. The stems are very ornate, twisted tree stems decorated with a lion, dolphins and a harvest God. The well modelled finial is a maiden in flowing dress, holding the produce. The spoons are in their original box, and appear to have never been used. The hallmarks on both spoons are very clear, with makers mark H.W for Lee & Wigfull, who worked between 1895 and 1931. These spoons are suitable for use as serving spoons (bowls 6.3 cm * 5.3 cm.)
