An exceptionally fine and rare George II 'Shell Back' Hash Spoon made in London in 1749 by Elias Cachart.


This quite exceptional spoon is modelled in the Hanoverian pattern and is of a large size and was most probably used as a Hash spoon. The reverse of the bowl is beautifully decorated with a very crisp raying shell motif and is very well marked. The top of the stem is engraved with an unusual contemporary Crest of a bound bunch of asparagus, with script initials below. The gauge and weight of this piece is exceptional and this example has a very good bowl and colour. Elias Cachart was a specialist spoon maker of very fine quality and was probably the largest manufacturer of spoons and forks at this date. A rare and exceptionally fine piece Shell Back example.
