Antique Irish Sterling Silver Rat Tail Ladle, engraved with coat of arms and the initials. 'J W E.' 

Mr Harry Williams-Bulkeley, head of the silver department at Christie's King Street, London, says old Irish silver is highly valued because "a lot less Irish silver survived. The Dublin assay office was a big operation but I think a lot of it has been melted over the years or gone with families to the States or wherever. And when it does come up, it comes up much less frequently than English [silver] and there's a very strong market for it".

Length: 15cm

Hallmarks: Dublin Assay Mark, Irish Silver Standards Mark, Date stamp 'C' for 1823, Kings Head for Reign of George V

Makers Mark: W C for William Cummins

Condition: Excellent. Hallmarks are crisp, no signs of wear to the spoon. 

SEDGWICKS pride ourselves on sourcing and selling Antique & Estate Jewellery that is of fine quality and in great condition.

Antique & Estate Jewellery is seldom in perfect or ‘new’ condition as age is inherent for it to be classified as such. Nearly all items we sell are ‘Second-hand’ and will almost certainly show some signs of wear. These may include faint scuffmarks and small dents, even very minor repairs. These are considered acceptable when dealing with objects that have lived a full life. Any imperfections or minor damage will be listed in the description and visible in the photo.

We do ask that you carefully view the photographs provided and note we are happy to supply more images or fuller description if requested.

To help you make your assessment, many higher value items are accompanied by an Independent Valuation for Retail or Insurance Purposes.
