Exeter 1852 hallmarked solid silver early Victorian period set of 5 teaspoons made by John Osment, flatware maker, in the fiddle pattern.
The Exeter assay office closed in 1883. Therefore such provincial silver pieces with Exeter hallmarks are more scarce and very collectable.
This set of 5 teaspoons have the lovely scrolled initials EW of the original owner to the stem and on the reverse under the hallmarks, the date of receiving them as a gift, 1853. They were likely an expensive wedding gift at the time.
Size-approximately 5.75 inches long by 1.25 inches wide.
Weight-93 grams.
One spoon has signs of a very old repair to the heel, and there are a few marks of use to the bowls.
A nice set of very collectable Exeter silver spoons in good condition overall.
A great set to use, add to a collection, or to complete a canteen.
