Offered is a nice English Georgian sterling silver Hanoverian pattern tablespoon bearing a well-executed period armorial of a hawk or falcon. This piece measures about 8 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 56 grams. Condition is fair at best, as the bowl has been reshaped and the stem may have a well done repair, given that the maker's mark is missing. However, this would make a decent fill-in piece for a set or a server for casual use. The repairs have been done well, and this piece prese...

Offered is a nice early crested Georgian English sterling silver sauce or gravy ladle by noted London silversmith Richard Crossley, fully hallmarked for 1782.
