georgian berry spoon set in velvet box. Pre 1800. Hallmarks on back
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful pair of antique silver berry spoons. Such antique spoons are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The design of the berry spoons are very nice and elegant with the berries and leaves as decoration. The original box adds to the value. Unfortunately the silver marks are too unclear so I cannot determine the maker nor the town. However I agree with you that this particular type of spoon, design and handwork was typical of the 1800s which dates the spoons to around 1800 and made in England. It is a nice pair of spoons that appear to be in fairly good condition despite being 200 years old.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online antique silver auction, where I believe the spoons has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the berry spoons. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
