Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The anterior surface of the handle is embellished with a variety of commemorative subtly gilded scenes separated by scrolling ribbon ornamentation accented with the scene depicting wording 'Peace', 'Commerce', 'Electricity', 'Rifle Volunteers', 'Steam' and 'Penny Postage'.
The reverse surface is ornamented with the insignia of the Star of India including the motto 'Heavens Light Our Guard' above a further scrolling ribbon design incorporating the wording 'Indian Empire', 'Canada', 'Australasia' and 'Cape Colony' amidst undulating laurel branches.
The lower portion of the reverse of the handle includes part hallmarks beside the inscription 'In commemoration of the 60th year of the most glorious reign of H.I.M. Victoria Empress & Queen - 1837-1897 -'.
The shaped terminal of the handle is ornamented in the form of the Imperial State Crown to both the anterior surface and reverse.
The anterior surface of the bowl of this antique silver spoon incorporates an impressive gilded scene depicting prestigious figures raising their crowns and surrounding the throne mounted Queen Victoria.
The reverse of the bowl is plain and unembellished, apart from the full hallmarks and registration number '288518' and features a leaf decorated heel.
This piece of antique silverware is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with satin and velvet lined interior bearing the initials 'V.R' beneath a design depicting the Imperial state crown.
The cover of the box secures with a decorative trefoil hinged catch.
The decoration to this antique silver spoon is very impressive and very crisp; this item shows no signs of wear or use.
