George Hocknell, born about 1812, is listed as a Rochester, New York silversmith, with residence in Seneca Falls, New York, later in his life.

This example of his work is a 6" long, .8 T. oz., c. 1840, cream ladle. It has a downturned fiddle handle with rounded shoulders off the bowl. There is a finely rendered, script, "M Campbell" monogram.

The piece is in very good condition. The bowl remains round and is free of dents, cracks, or breaks, although it has a slight bit of unevenness in the base. The inscription remains crisp, with no evidence of polishing wear. The surface has an appealing luster showing only light scratching consistent with age.
