An Old Sheffield Plate Soup Ladle in the Old English Pattern

This beautiful Old Sheffield Plate soup ladle was made circa 1790. It measures approximately 13 inches in length.

Old Sheffield Plate flatware is rare, as it was somewhat of an experiment. Large serving pieces such as this were made quite successfully, but smaller eating pieces are often in very poor condition, as they did not stand up to regular use. This piece though is in very good condition, although it has some plate loss on the handle through wear, and what appears to be some flaking to the plate on the top of the handle, as pictured. On occasion these have open seams or splits to the metal, but this one is in excellent integrity.

A rare and collectable piece of Georgian Old Sheffield Plate.

Type: Ladle
Function: Dining
Country: England

Price: £ 185 GBP
