Kings Pattern Single Struck Silver Tablespoons
Antique silver single struck Kings Pattern tablespoons by James Mckay & one matching tablespoon by James & Walter Marshall & Elder & Co.
A Scottish set of six silver tablespoons in lovely condition, good gauge & weight, single struck king's pattern with shoulders with good definition to king's pattern. Typically single struck flatware is associated with Scottish silversmiths. All six tablespoons are engraved with crest to terminal (unknown) The Marshall & Elder spoon has a different crest to terminal, please see images. The Marshall silver spoon has the duty mark of William IV, this spoon is a perfect match to the other five tablespoons by Mckay. The other five tablespoons have the duty mark of William IV, although in the period of Queen Victoria. Sovereign head marks can succeed their period of monarchy, it is the date letter that matters, duty marks are proof that the fees has been paid.
All spoons are in excellent condition without tears, dents or repairs, surface marks representative of age. The crests are rubbed slightly along with assay marks but all legible & good for age.
