Condition


This antique silver Dog Nose pattern spoon is an exceptional gauge of silver for its type, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The rat tail decoration is very sharp.

The Britannia standard hallmarks struck to the reverse of the handle are very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver which is often not the case due to the nature of their location.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique dining silverware.
