Offered is a nice Scottish provincial silver spoon by jeweler and silversmith John Pringle, working in Perth circa 1823-60. This piece probably dates to the earlier part of Pringle's career. It is engraved with a period Scottish-style script monogram of JF or IF, and bear's Pringle's maker's mark, struck twice and accompanied by two strikes of a Perth eagle pseudo-hallmark. Please take a look at all the photos. This piece measures about 5 7/16 inches in length and weighs about 14 grams. Condition is good overall, with the bowl slightly out of round and with light wear overall from normal use, but with no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all good example of this Scottish provincial silversmith's maker's work and mark!

According to an online forum source, John Pringle served his apprenticeship under the Perth Silversmith, Charles Murray (Seven years as from 5th June 1816).
