£1,100

This very rare Scottish Provincial Spoon is modelled in the Hanoverian pattern and is of a very good, thick, gauge and displays a thick tip to the bowl.  The top of the spoon is engraved with a Stag Crest with the Motto "I am Ready" engraved above on a banner in the Scottish manner.  The Crest is that of the Fraser family.  The spoon is in excellent condition, with a good colour, and displays a crisp set of marks which are illustrated on page 610 of Jackson's "Silver & Gold Marks."  Silver from Montrose is extremely rare, this being only the fourth item we have had over the years.

Length: 8 inches, 20 cm.
