Pair Antique English Georgian c1800 Sterling Silver Gravy/Sauce Ladle NO MONOS
Presented is an antique pair of sterling silver gravy or sauce ladles made during the late 1700 or early 1800s. It is hard to pinpoint the origin of this pair of ladles. These were most likely made in provincial England, an English colony, or Chinese export, or perhaps even American. This Georgian pair is done in a classic English 18th century form and they have never been monogrammed.
The backs are marked with the lion passant for sterling silver, a duty mark of the king's head used during the late 1700s and early 1800s and a maker's mark of the initials IH. Even though these are pseudo marks, they were made around the same time as what these marks would indicate.
This set is in great overall condition considering its age. There is minor surface wear, but no damages and no repairs.
Length: 5 7/8 inches.
