Early Georgian Sterling Silver Onslow Pattern Stuffing Spoon c.1768-73

However, those spoons are not generally joined in the same way the period Onslow serving pieces were; a period spoon should have a scarf joint joining the cast scroll end to the stem, as this spoon does (see pictures). And, this spoon bears the... Click for details
