Who says Old English pattern is light? Once you have handled a pair of tablespoons like this you realise why people make such a fuss about antique British sterling flatware. There simply is no more sensuous way to eat your meal than with implements like these spoons. They have a marvellous, substantial heft and balance in the hand, and they can be used for soup (as the English do )or for serving, (as the Americans do). They are versatile, and in such wonderful condition that I am secretly hoping they won't sell :-) . They would make the most fabulous wedding gift or perhaps a gift to mark a special anniversary or even a Christening. Timeless and elegant, they are as appropriate to a modern setting as they are to a traditional one.
Crisp hallmarks and lovely stag crests.
Length: 22.2cm (8 3/4 inches)
