SOLD

Offered is a large and early Scottish Georgian sterling silver platter spoon by Alexander Gardner of Edinburgh, fully hallmarked for 1769. This piece is engraved with a very good armorial for a branch of the Campbell clan, a griffin sergeant holding the sun between its claws proper, surmounted by the motto Fidus Amici ("faithful friends"). This piece measures about 13 inches in length and weighs about 93 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs, and only normal surface wear. However, there is a small area of scuffing (see pics) on the bottom of the bowl. All in all a lovely and useful piece with a very nice crest!
