A pair of York Silver spoons: Georgian Fiddle PatternSOLD
This fine pair of Antique York Silver spoons were made by Barber and North, 1787. They are of fine quality and in the Fiddle Pattern. Each spoon measures 22cm long. They are both in excellent condition with no damage or repair. There is a very slight amount of right handed wear, but hardly worth noting. They have not been heavily used. Each of these York Silver tablespoonspoons are crested on the handle as pictured.
York silver, being one of the English Provincial silver centres, is rare and highly collectable. While much silver was produced in London at this period, the city of York had a much smaller output. It is worth noting however, that the quality of York silver was in no way inferior to that of London, despite what many would have you believe!
A rare opportunity to own a pair of good York Silver spoons in the Fiddle Pattern.
