‘The Silver Chest'




A George III Exeter Silver Tablespoon


Exeter 1815 made by George Ferris


Weight: 1. 4 oz. / 44 gms.


Length :  22 cms. / 8.7 ins.


Now here is what I believe to be a ‘Wedding Spoon’ – a gift given to W.M. and T.P. in 1816 to celebrate their marriage.  I understand it was quite commonplace to do this, however I am not sure what the ‘A’ stands for – perhaps someone could suggest something.   Made by Richard Ferris’s son, George, both of whom were well respected silversmiths from Exeter and who both produced a prolific amount of quality pieces in their time.   I just love the script they used for engraving – very typical of the age, yet in reality a very primitive, basic and fast way of engraving.  Clever chaps these Georgian silversmiths!   This is in lovely condition and the hallmarks are clear and distinct.
