Unusual and fine pair of Victorian silver serving spoons with ornate handles with the mask of a "green man" rising out of the plain bowls. The handles continue with a cast hexagonal shape with the front and back with an inset band of dots either side of a wavy line, and finishing with a decorative ball terminal. The reverse is similarly decorated with the robes of the masked face wrapping around the back above a scallop shell decorated heel.
Hallmarked for London 1883, maker William Hutton & Sons (Edward Hutton).
They measure 20cm (7 7/8") long (one is a few millimetres longer than the other as one of the handles is fractionally longer than the other but this certainly isn't meaningful and is fully original), and 4.7cm (1 7/8") wide. They weigh 120g/3.8ozt.
Condition is very good with no damage or repairs, light surface wear and lovely clear hallmarks.
