This is a solid sterling 925 silver hallmarked antique condiment sauce ladle from America, c1880.
Hand-shaped into a pendant by hammering and bending the handle of the spoon.
Re-crafted from a solid silver spoon with a gilded bowl. N.B. The gilding is quite worn after all these years! Fully hallmarked makers Black Starr & Frost.
There are some light surface scratches and a slight patina to be expected on antique silver items which have been carefully used and well cared for. The pendant is not made from a brand new piece of silver, any scratches and signs of wear add to it's character ;-)
Pendant measures 8.5cm .
Supplied on a brown leather thong that can be adjusted to suit.
Supplied with a pretty fabric drawstring bag. Will be posted signed for delivery.
