$55.00

A generously proportioned piece, this sterling spoon measures 9 1/8" long and weighs 1.9 T. oz.

Its origins are Irish, with hallmarks indicating it was made in Dublin in 1821 by Joshua Buckton, as indicated by the "I pellet B" imprint. James Brady also dates from the same time, but his mark is absent the pellet.

It is an "Old English" pattern, with a down-turned, reverse tip handle and a thumb drop on the bowl backside.

There is a feathered script "AMcC" monogram engraved on the front.

It is in excellent condition, showing scant signs of use, essentially a bit of softening from polishing on the monogram. The bowl remains well-shaped and free of tip wear, dents, or bends, and the overall finish is warm and even.
