A George IV silver basting or stuffing spoon.

A George IV silver basting or stuffing spoon, in the Fiddle pattern and of typical form with a broad terminal engraved with period initials and fully hallmarked, long stem and large bowl with shoulders. London 1825 by Thomas and George Hayter, their mark overstriking another unidentified maker.

Condition: Overall very good, the spoon is in excellent condition with no dents or major scratches, the bowl is in good condition and not worn at the tip, the marks are clear and legible. The initials date from the time of manufacture.

It is not uncommon to find a maker’s mark overstriking another; this was especially the case with retail silversmiths buying in stock from another business and overstriking it with their own mark.
