Pair of Irish Provincial Silver Teaspoons Circa 1820
click for details
Offered is a good pair of early 19th Century Irish provincial silver teaspoons, probably made in Cork, but marked only STERLING and lacking a maker's mark. These are certainly early 19th Century and Irish, and the specific maker could perhaps be determined by comparing the dies for STERLING used by the various Cork silversmiths. In any event, these teaspoons are nice examples of nearly 200-year old provincial Irish silver that can be used on a day-to-day basis. Each spoon bears an engraved... Click for details
