Hallmark:  Lion Passant ~ Sterling, City ~ London, Date Letter "N" ~ 1888, Monarch Head ~ Duty

Size:  9 & 1/8 inches

Quantity:  1 pair = 2 spoons

Exceptional pair of antique sterling servers in the rare Stag Hunt pattern.  This desirable and hard to find motif, along with the similar Bacchanalian pattern, are the rarest of the variants originally designed by Thomas Stothard for Rundell, Bridge and Rundell c. 1812; also produced, Mask, Boar Hunt, and Fox Hunt. These designs were continued by a few superior silversmiths, most notably Storr, Roskell, Hunt, Lias, Wakely and Wheeler.  Although the makers mark is rubbed on both spoons, the rounded bottom section of one mark is discernible and after comparing hallmarks and time periods we concluded that these spoons were likely produced by the Lias brothers and/or Wakely/Wheeler.

These fine spoons are double struck, featuring different figural scenes front and back.  Handle fronts depict the huntsman, hounds and stag.  Reverse depicts bow, quiver with arrows, sword,and hunting horn.

The bowls are deep, finely scalloped and fluted.

Bowl reverse features the beautifully detailed and decorated ladies head or bust, with very large ruffled collar or headdress.  This bust is not found on all pieces in this pattern; or if present, is often notably less elaborate than the version depicted on these examples.

The spoons are appropriately and identically hallmarked sterling, London, c.1888/89; one slightly more rubbed than other.  Due to location on bowl back, makers mark is most affected, being barely visible on one and only partially discernible on the other spoon; we were unable to photograph makers mark, however all other marks are clearly visible, as shown in our image.

These are very large serving pieces, measuring apx. 9 & 1/8 inches.

They are extremely well made and constructed of very substantial sterling; combined weight is a considerable 6.3 troy ounces.

The spoons are in extremely nice condition, with no dings, dents or noted repairs.  Commensurate with age and use the pattern design on handles shows light smoothing, as appropriate and expected for 120 year old serving pieces.   Overall an exceptional, hard to find PAIR of large antique servers, in a desirable and highly sought after, historically important pattern.
