This incredible sterling silver, Georgian period teaspoon of exquisite craftsmanship was presumably presented as a prize for shooting. The top of the handle shows a pair of crossed rifles with embossed letter "L, J, S & B". The spoon is made of English sterling silver (19g) and is hallmarked. The spoon is 12.8cm long. The hallmarks on the spoon consist of the "crown" city mark confirming it was made in Sheffield, the Lion Passant confirming it is British sterling silver (925), the letter "t" confirming the spoon was made in 1911 and the makers stamp (assay) confirms the spoon was made by Walter Adam Phillips Silversmiths of Sheffield.
