Superb, very rare and of very good gauge pair of Old England Tablespoons.
Maker: Jonathan Hayne. London 1832.

The earliest known examples of this pattern are dated 1830 and it is commonly believed that the pattern was produced for the coronation of William IV. According to Ian Pickford in his book Silver Flatware - English, Irish and Scottish 1660-1980 only one service is known to exist and building one would be almost impossible.
This pattern is so striking and eye catching that it is generally used for dessert purposes and its intricacy compliments other plainer patterns well. The spoons are decorated with symbolic plants of the British Isles such as the rose, shamrock, thistle and oak leaves with acorns.
The full set of hallmarks and makers mark are very clearly stamped on the reverse side of the bowls.
These spoons would make an excellent gift.

Length: 9 inches (22.86cm)
Weight: 6.7 troy ounces (208.3 grams) the pair.
