Christening Bowl & Spoon
A cased silver spot-hammered Christening bowl and accompanying spoon by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company Ltd., then of Regent Street, London.
The circular bowl rises from a spread foot and shows a lightly hammered finish below a gently flared rim which has a diameter of just a fraction below 11 cm.
The spoon is midway in size between a teaspoon and a dessert spoon, having a length of 14.5 cm.
Both pieces have a London hallmark for the year 1920 and are also impressed with the G&SCoLtd mark.
Presented in the original shaped red velvet lined leather case with its gold line detail.
Very likely never used in all its 100 year plus history.
