A fiddle pattern teaspoon, by J. J. Cohen of Sydney NSW circa 1840 crested for BOYD.
Price: £325.00
                                                             Although there were a number of members of this family in the colony at the time, the most prominent was Benjamin Boyd (1801-1851), an entrepreneur who, among other ventures, founded the Royal Bank of Australia. After some time prospecting in California, Boyd was returning to Australia when he stopped at the Solomon Islands to hunt game, an area he had once spoken of colonising. He never returned to his ship and his body was never found.                                                                            [For more detailed information, see the Australian Dictionary for National Biography]

A 'Duty Drawback' Old English teaspoon with bright-cut engraving, by Hester Bateman London 1784, initialled {JM}.
Price:

                                                             The 'Duty Drawback' or Exportation mark was only used between 1st December 1784 and 24th July 1785 and then only on pieces exported from England and therefore not liable for the newly instituted Duty on precious metal objects. This is generally considered to be the rarest hallmark in English silver.

Houstone, pages 77-8

A teaspoon with shaped stem and French inspired decoration, 1763-1768 or 1771-1773 by Patrick Robertson of Edinburgh, engraved with the coronet and crest of Charles 9th Baron Cathcart (1721-1776).
Price: £220.00
                                                                       Charles 9th Baron Cathcart (1721-1776) joined the army in 1742 and rose to the rank of Lieutenant-General in 1760. He was Aide-De-Compte to the Duke of Cumberland during the continental campaigns and served with him during the Jacobite rising in 1745. In 1748-1749 he was sent to Paris as one of the hostages to secure the peace Treaty between England and France signed at Aix-La-Chapelle in 1748. Among other honours he was given he was made a Knight of the Thistle in 1763 and served as British Ambassador to Russia between 1768 and 1771.
                                                                       The appearance of the motto and insignia of the Order of the Thistle surrounding Cathcart's crest shows that he acquired this spoon after 1763 and the continental design means that it could have been made to replace one acquired earlier in his career. Two possibilities are during his time in France in 1748-1749 or his time in Russia between 1768 and 1771 ( French styles were very much in vogue at the time).
