Offered is a lovely Irish Georgian silver platter spoon hallmarked, for Dublin, 1812, and bearing a maker's mark of RW (perhaps for Richard Whitford) and a scratched out retailer's mark. This piece is also engraved with a period armorial of a cat of some kind grasping a broken spear in its mouth, as well as the initials REN to the heel. The initials appear to be period to the piece. This platter spoon matches a salad serving fork from 1825, converted from a platter spoon, with the same crest and initials. That piece is being offered separately.

This platter spoon measures about 12 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 108 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minor bowl edge wear and a few small scuffs to the surface, but no dents, splits or repairs. Please review all of the photos. All in all a fine piece of Irish Georgian silver!
