This form of spoon, with its long hollow tubular stem, was introduced in the late Charles II period

and made up to c1725, when they became a large version of the tablespoon.

Although known as "basting spoons", such large spoons - usually over 14" -

were probably intended to be general purpose cooking and serving spoons.

Two large ladles in the Royal Collections and Chester Corporation Plate were used for soup.

A similar spoon, listed as a "porridge ladle", was ordered in 1695 by John Hervey, 1st Earl of Bristol.

 

Condition : Excellent, maker's marks RO in a heart beneath above a mullet (cast over but good);
other marks good as well; small horizontal slit opening to finial,

likely when the two sections were being soldered together,

or allowance for the blowhole which was the custom.

 

16" Long / 5.4 oz
