Cape Silver Mustard Spoons - John Townsend
Reference: S1971
Period: George IV
Year: 1824-1841
Silversmith: John Townsend
Place: Cape
Price: $ 500.00
Weight: 34 grams
Dimensions: 11.6 cm
Condition: Good, scratches to bowls, some fading to gilding in bowls.

Description: A rare pair of Cape silver mustard spoons, in the Fiddle pattern with gilded bowls, with pseudo English hallmarks. The hallmarks include makers mark JT in damaged punch (Welz mark 123), and 4 pseudo marks (Georgian duty, date letter a, leopards head and date letter J, Welz mark 122, page 153). One spoon has excellent hallmarks, the second has good hallmarks, some slight wear. Heller does record Cape made salt and mustard spoons, and depicts 6 salt spoons in his book "History of Cape Silver" (pg 202, plate 67). Cape mustard spoons appear to be be much rarer than salt spoons, none are known in any of the Cape silver reference books. We have sold a similar Cape mustard spoon by Townsend, (but slighty longer and different combination of pseudo marks), see S 1818.
