Highly decorative pair of GEORGE IV sterling silver salt spoons in Rococo naturalistic style.
Maker: Charles Fox II. London 1827.

The bowl of these spoons are gilded so that the salt will not erode the silver, while the stem is entwined with leaves and flowers. The tip of both stems has a very realistic and impressive sea shell with well defined ribbing. A contemporary family crest is engraved on the front of both stems below the shell and above the flower.
Naturalistic rococo style became popular at this time because of the very splendid designs made for George IV for his home Carlton House. The main object that sparked the public's interest was the very ornate naturalistic table service which included the 'Grand Service' which reflected this style at its very best.
The full set of hallmarks are very clearly struck on the side of the back of both bowls.
These spoons are almost wasted as salt spoons and would be ideal for serving jelly or condiments.
