Antique silverware

Recommended Posts

Evening guys, I’ve come across a Georgian period set of sterling sauce ladles, hallmarked 1800. Would anyone know what they’re worth ?

 

I’ve been told they’re worth not much above spot, That can’t be right they’re bloody older than 200 years.... The pair have history & definitely must had replenished many souls :) 

 

Very nice clean hallmarks for a piece of this age, Appreciate any info in advance.

They are lovely, and still usable in this day and age and of a design that does not look out of place today,  and not worn from the state of the hallmarks, they aint scrap, an ebay auction with a reserve will find out, I seen items like this when I visit antiques centres going for anything upwards of £80 depending on condition and weight.

Honesty I may consider keeping them love history & collecting old pieces, They’re in superb condition I can see my face on them clear as day, plus they haven’t been polished in a while as I do see some patina. Very happy with my pickup :)

this makers mark is a real mystery mmm intriguing 

its defo London can't find it though 

might have to send them in to get the maker properly could  be very rare pieces

Might get in touch with a few antique dealers they could hopefully shed some light, if not possible London Assay could but have no clue if they share records with the public 🧐
