EARLY GEORGE III IRISH SILVER HOOK-END SOUP LADLE
Joseph Cullen, Dublin, 1763

 

 

Having a deep scalloped bowl, the arched shaft with ‘hooked’ end,
the upper half of the shaft engraved in the Irish manner

“a cherub's head between wings” (Adye, Ambrose, Baird, Brady, et al);
crisp marks to the lower shaft verso

 


Hook End (or hook-handle) basting spoons are peculiar to Ireland,
and date mostly from the mid-18th century.
The unique characteristic of hook-end spoons is the broad over-scrolled terminal.
As well, their shafts are sometimes incised with foliate engraving
descending from a crested cartouche
These serving utensils are mentioned in text as hanging from vessels,
and being "good for drawing poultry" (removing poultry insides).
