QUEEN'S PATTERN SIX WILLIAM IV SILVER SERVING or SOUP SPOONS LONDON 1832. This very rare and unusual design is a variant of Queen's Scroll pattern with harebells replacing the rose to the front of the finial and a Leaf heel. The design is double-stamped, hence the use of a heavy grade of silver. Crested identically with a Phoenix Rising to the rear of the finials. All are in highly polished and excellent condition with no splits, fractures or distortions.
There is no thinning to the bowl tips which are nicely pointed. The finish is virtually a mirror one and the condition is absolutely outstanding. They are very heavy indeed with a combined weight of 616g - almost 20 Troy ounces. The maker's mark WE in the double roundel is followed by a four-part hallmark consisting of the Lion Passant, the Leopard's Head lower-case date code letter'r' and the Head of George IV (London 1832) Although George IV had died in 1830, it was not until 1834 that the Head of William IV appeared on London silver.Each spoon measures 8.75 / 22.2cm in length. They are in clean and useable condition but show minor surface scratches under magnification.
