Rare Set of 8 Albert pattern heavy Silver Salt condiment spoons ladles 1840/41

  • A rare set 8 heavy solid silver salt or condiment spoons by Wm Eaton and hallmarked in London in 1840 and 1841. In the rare Albert pattern, these spoons are of exceptional quality and in great condition.  They all have lovely gold washed or gilded bowls to protect the silver from the corrosive elements in the condiment/salt etc. Excellent with a set of good clear hall marks on all spoons. Two spoons are 1840 the other 6 are 1841.
    Very good gauge silver. There is a dog's or hound's head crest with its ears pricked engraved on the terminal of each spoon.  Please see the photographs.  
    We are also listing a very slightly smaller pair of Albert pattern salt spoons with the same crest and shape but less ornate heel by a different maker - Hayne and Carter.
    Length: 11.6 cms
