A very rare set of eight George II Cast Teaspoons made in London circa 1750 by George Smith I.
The Spoons have cast Hanoverian stems which are unusually decorated with the figure of a boy in frock coat, wearing a ruff and surrounded by scroll work, with a shell above. This is the first time we have seen this specific design. The Spoons are palely gilded and have shell bowls. Each is bottom marked with a crisp makers mark and sterling mark. Length: 4.6 inches.
