18th c. Georgian Silver Sauce / Cream Ladle w/ 1787 George III Sixpence – Baleen Handle
A rare opportunity to own an elegant 18th c. Georgian Silver Sauce / Cream Ladle w/ 1787 George III Sixpence and a Baleen Handle.
There is a faint, worn, period script monogram on the front of the bowl. These ladles were generally not hallmarked. By and large, it seems to be accepted in auction rooms that this type of ladle is contemporary to the date of the coin. Destroying a coin of the realm in this manner was illegal so no hallmarking could be done and w/o hallmarks it is impossible to establish an exact date.
The baleen handle floated, making it easier to retrieve the ladle when dropped in the punch
This ladle is approximately 7″ long – the bowl is 2″ X 1.5″ and .75″ deep.
