FINE RARE ANTIQUE MID 18. CENTURY SOLID STERLING SILVER & TURNED WOOD PUNCH LADLE – GEORGE II COIN INSERT TO BOWL 1758. On offer is this fine, rare antique George II era, mid 18. Century, solid sterling silver and wood punch ladle, with a lovely decorative bowl in repousse silver, George II coin insert to centre of bowl 1758 – please see the photos – and they do not do it justice. Due to their size, these ladles are always difficult to photograph satisfactorily, to show all the wonderful crafting and detail. The bowl has a monogram attractively engraved to the front which, judging by the style, appear to be contemporary to the piece. Unbranded, no hallmarks, as was common with these types of coin insert ladles. About 33cm in length; 5.5cm by 6.5cm across the bowl, including the lip; and weighs 44g. It is in good. Antique condition, especially considering it is 264 years old, the usual signs of wear commensurate with age and use. The handle is firmly attached, as is the silver finial, there are no splits or dents, or signs of repair, as far as I can tell. If you have any questions, please ask. Any dark marks, etc are reflections or bits of age-related patina. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING. Whilst you are here, why not have a look at our other lovely solid silver items?
