An early 19th century Scottish silver metal toddy ladle.

The ladle has a spiral horn or baleen handle and a maker's mark where the bowl meets the handle 'JW' for William Jamieson of Aberdeen.

The bowl of the ladle has raised letters around the rim that has been planished from a George II five guinea coin with the Latin words 'Decus Et Tutamen Anno Regni Octavo' which translates as "An ornament and a safeguard, in the year of the reign Octavo".

This Latin wording was found on the edge of five guinea coins from Charles II up till the end of the reign of George II, Octavo being the regnal year 1735 of George II.

The ladle is in sound condition but would have had a small silver metal cap at the tip of the handle. (Circa 1810)

Length 36.5cm (14.4 inches)
