Offered is a very good early English sterling silver master salt spoon, circa 1770-80. This piece is nicely decorated with feather-edging and engraved with an armorial of a dragon's head. See my other listings for a contemporaneous master salt cellar with the same crest. This master salt spoon is very unusual in that it is not only a duty dodger, with nothing but maker's marks, but also has two different maker's marks. One is TE, perhaps for Thomas Evans of London, and the other is TE over GS, an untraced mark listed in Grimwade as no. 3820, found on teaspoons dating to circa 1763-64. This master salt spoon measures about four inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is good overall, with some surface wear from normal use, but no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine piece of crested Georgian silver!
