Stock No. 8550a
£150.00
Hallmarked
London 1835

Superb, very rare Old England Teaspoon.
Maker: Jonathan Hayne. London 1835.

The earliest known examples of this pattern are dated 1830 and it is commonly believed that the pattern was produced for the coronation of William IV. According to Ian Pickford in his book Silver Flatware - English, Irish and Scottish 1660-1980 only one service is known to exist and building one would be almost impossible.
This pattern is so striking and eye catching that it is generally used for dessert purposes and it's intricacy compliments other plainer patterns well. This spoon is decorated with symbolic plants of the British Isles such as the rose, shamrock, thistle and oak leaves with acorns.
The full set of hallmarks and maker's mark are very clearly stamped on the reverse side of the stem.
This teaspoon would make an excellent gift.
