19th Century Antique George Sharp Sterling Silver Ladle
This is a fine sterling silver ladle with wonderfully detailed and beaded finial of detailed line work, which is a typical trademark of George Sharp silver-work. It also has a hexagonal stalk that leads to the rose gold wash bowl of the ladle. This spoon is a beautiful piece of silver, which has been barely used and is in great condition for its age. It dates to 1860-1870. It has the mark of Sterling Silver and "Patented" on the stalk. George Sharp did not have a makers mark which he used on his pieces, but this ladle is a classic example of his work. In 1864 George Sharp made a patent drawing for his designs that with it shows notes that state: "ornamental design for the ends of handles of spoons, etc." It reads, also: "The nature of my invention or production consists in finishing the extreme outer ends of the shank handles of ladles....(cont.) in the ornamental globular forms". This explains the mark, "Patented" on the stalk. He was a master of finials, and the bulbous decorations at the end of handles. The ladle with handle measures 15 inches and the bowl part is 3 1/2 inches wide. Weights 6 troy ounces. This George Sharp ladle is a wonderful addition to a 19th Century Silver Collection.
