An 1840 successor to Chawner & Co., George Adams was one of the most significant silversmiths of Victorian England.

This 4 1/2" long, weighty at .8 T. oz., master salt spoon bears his "GA" mark, along with a "lion" for sterling, a date letter for 1849-50, a "leopard head" for London, and a "queen's head" duty mark.

The pattern is a double die struck, meaning it appears on both sides of the handle, "Thread" aka "Fiddle Thread," which in this instance is engraved with a rampant lion crest on the front.

The oval bowl is generously-sized and deep, and finished with an intact gold-wash on the interior.

In flawless condition, this is without wear or damage and shows a warm finish.
