Attractive and very useful Victorian sterling silver Stag Hunt Pattern serving spoon.
Makers: Lias & Wakelin. London 1881.
This is a very rare Regency Pattern designed for Rundell Bridge & Rundell by Stothard.
The pattern was originally made by Paul Storr but Storr's successors continued to make this design later into the 19th century and it is still produced today.
This is a relatively small serving spoon which came out of a dessert service. The bowl is nicely gilded on the inside.
The image of the stag hunt on the front of the stem is very graphic and well executed while the reverse of the stem has a striking classical design.
The shorter length makes this serving implement ideal for serving fruit salad and other desserts. This a very dramatic piece.
The full set of hallmarks are clearly stamped on the side of the back of the bowl.
