Presented is an antique, English sterling silver spoon and marrow scoop made in London during the late 1600s or early 1700s. We believe this piece was made in 1680, but the date hallmark is extremely worn. The whole spoon has a deep gold wash and is finely hand engraved with design. This is an incredible quality and very rare piece that is over 200 years old.

The back of the spoon is marked with the crowned leopard's head for London and the lion passant for sterling silver purity used between the 1680s and the 1730s. The date letter appears to be a c for the year 1680 or an e for the year 1682.

This piece is in excellent condition for its age. There is minor wear and some slight pitting to the bowl and there has been a repair. The engravings are crisp. The gold wash is not original, it was re-guilded at some point.

Length: 6 inches.

Weight: 15 grams.
