The Spoon is modelled in the Old English Thread Pattern, which is double struck. The bowl of the spoon is partly hooded and pierced with roundels for straining. The top of the stem is engraved with a contemporary Crest and the reverse is very well marked. Most straining spoons have a central division in the bowl, however the hooded design is not often seen. These pieces would have been used for straining small vegetables and thick gravy. The quality and gauge of this piece is very fine, as would be expected from this specialist flatware maker.

Length: 11.75 inches, 29.38cm.
Weight: 6oz.
