$225.00

Measuring precisely 12" long and weighing 2.2 T. oz., this meat skewer is nearly 250 years old.

It is fully hallmarked for Newcastle, England, 1774-75, sterling silver, and makers William Stalker & John Mitchison.

Typical of the form, it has a tapered shank that goes from 3/8" wide to a pointed tip. This has beveled edges, with feathering on the upper portions front and back. This is also the place where the marks are located on one side and a "WWS" monogram on the other.

The 1 1/8" diameter ring end has a feathered edge that resembles gadrooning, and is inscribed with leaf detailing where it joins the handle.

In very fine condition and without bends, cracks, or repairs, it shows modest evidence of wear, largely in the form of various shallow nicks and scratches on the otherwise smooth and evenly patinated surfaces.
