This is a solid sterling (925) silver hallmarked antique christening spoon. Sizes Q - S.
Hand-shaped into a beautiful chunky, long & heavy ring by heating, hammering and bending the bowl and handle.
Re-crafted from a solid silver Victorian spoon. Hallmarked makers John Gilbert, Birmingham 1863.
There are some light surface scratches and slight patina, to be expected on antique silver items which have been carefully used and well cared for. The ring is not made from a brand new piece of silver, any scratches and signs of wear add to it's character ;-) Being hand-crafted, this ring may not be as perfectly round as a mass produced machine made ring might be. This does not affect the fit or loveliness of the ring at all!

Weight 39.6g.

Supplied in a fabric drawstring bag and with a Change of Use Certificate from the Sheffield Assay office (which is a legal requirement.)
