Description

VERY RARE HIGHLY IMPORTANT early 18th century Scottish provincial "rat tail" silver serving spoon by JAMES BROWN of FRASERBURGH. There have been only a handful of similar marked spoons found with this IB and the armorial shield mark and all have had identical type initial marks to the end. This example having the initials M over WM over AM. Unfortunately the hallmarks on this spoon are rubbed but the IB mark is clear and the rectangular armorial mark can be made out under a strong magnifier.
Having come from a private collection this spoon also comes with a detailed double sheet of information about the maker from a review of the Lyon and Turnball Scottish silver sale from 16th August 2017 where a similar spoon was sold with slightly better marks.
James Brown was known to have been working in Perth in 1724 and is also known to have moved to the north east part of Scotland with his son Francis looking for work. There are spoons known by James Brown with the town name PERTH  ...show more description
