A Victorian silver-gilt Communion Spoon, London 1851, John Keith. The stem of the spoon engraved ' Deo humill: oblat R. T. Lowe 1852.'
Richard Thomas Lowe, 1802-1874, is best known for his writings on the flora and fauna of Madeira, where he was chaplain from 1833.His association with 'High Church' Oxford movement led to Lord Palmerston's demands that he should resign in 1847. He left the island in 1852. In 1874 he drowned soon after setting off on another expedition.
Good overall with some wear to the gilding and some knocks to the surface.
