EARLY GEORGE III SILVER HASH SPOON
Joseph Bell II, London, 1762
Of heavy gauge silver in the Hanoverian pattern, having an upturned tip and single drop heel
over a deep ovoid bowl, the terminal scratch engraved to the verso ''AM to CM'' ;
particularly crisp mark : Grimwade #3624, (one of the few English marks using the full name)
"Hash Spoons" :
Specialized spoons from the 18th and early 19th centuries,
whose purpose it was to serve a mixture of meat and potatoes (hash).
These spoons are quite large, with proportionally larger bowls -- sometimes quite massive in fact.
They differ from 11-12 inch 'basting spoons' (which Americans fondly call 'stuffing spoons')
not only in length (13" to about 16"), but often in the sheer volume of the bowl itself.
Condition : Excellent; exceptional marks; the bowl with very minor tip wear to the right side
14" Long, The Bowl, 4.5" Long x 2.5" Wide / 5.92 oz.
