George IV rococo salt shovel Paul Storr London 1827

A George IV rococo revival salt shovel with naturalistic stem terminating in a rocaille shell, by Paul Storr London 1827 .

The very unusual design of this saltspoon does not appear to have direct parallells in British silver and seems likely to derive from a European source.

Charles XIV John Old English salt ladle spice sifter 1829 Stockholm Gustaf Folcker Baron Bloomfield

A Charles XIV John Old English pattern salt ladle and spice sifter by Gustaf Folcker Stockholm 1829, engraved with a Baron's coronet and a {B} for Benjamin Bloomfield, 1st Baron Bloomfield (1768-1846).
Price: £275.00

Benjamin Bloomfield (1768-1846), the only son of John Bloomfield a lieutenant in the Grenadier Guards, followed his father into the army in 1781. After being an early recruit into the horse artillery Bloomfield was attached to the 10th Hussars (despite his relative poverty), as a Major and commander of a troop. He was posted to Brighton where his social and musical accomplishments brought him to the notice of the Prince of Wales, later Prince Regent and King George IV.

From 1810 Bloomfield had an unofficial role as chief spymaster against George's wife Caroline. The Prince and Princess were separated and George wanted a divorce. Bloomfield received further (official) promotions in 1812. The Prince then appointed Bloomfield as one of his gentleman attendants, chief equerry and clerk-marshal and, in the Prince's interest, Member of Parliament for Plymouth. In 1814 a commission as Major General followed and in 1815 Bloomfield was made a Knight Commander of the Hanoverian Order (an order closely associated with George IV). The rise in Bloomfield's fortunes continued when in 1816 he became chief auditor and secretary of the Duchy of Cornwall (the main land holding and income source of the Prince of Wales) and finally Private Secretary to the Prince in 1817.

Bloomfield fell from favour in 1822 and resigned all of his Royal offices. However he did receive the Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath, a pension, two sinecure offices, the promise of a peerage and a diplomatic post in the future. From 1822-1832 Bloomfield served as British Ambassador to Stockholm and in 1825 was created Baron Bloomfield. He also returned to his military life and commanded the garrison at Woolwich for some years- during which he founded schools for children of the soldiers of ordnance corps (including his original regiment of the Royal Artillery).

A small hand painted depiction of Bloomfield's arms (before his elevation to the peerage) can be found as stock number 7702.

George III Old English saltspoon Boston Mass circa 1770 James Tyler Howe

A George III Old English pattern saltspoon, by JT (attributed to James Tyler of Boston, Massachusetts) circa 1770-1780, crested for Astley or Howe .
Price: £245.00

The crest on this saltspoon could be that of the Astley or Howe families. There seems to be no link between the Astleys and Boston but in the 1770s two members of the Howe family were known to be in America.

Despite being sympathetic to the cause of the American Colonists in their fight for independence Admiral Richard Howe (1726-1799), a friend of Benjamin Franklin, was sent in command of the fleet at the beginning of what became the War of Independence. Howe retained the command from 1776-1778 but, following his public support of the colonists and the opposition in parliament, he was recalled to London and faced scrutiny as to his actions.

With Admiral Howe in America was his younger brother General Sir William Howe (1729-1814), who shared his brother's views, and was sent in command of the land forces. He had considerable success against the army commanded by George Washington (capturing both New York and Philadelphia). General Howe resigned his commission in 1777 and returned to England the following year.

A George III Old English Thread pattern saltspoon made in York circa 1800 by Hampston Prince and Cattles (Gubbins mark 4), crested with an antelope holding a shield on which are the crest and motto of Hamilton.

A number of the branches of the house of Hamilton, the most prominent branch being the Dukes of Hamilton who are the senior peers of Scotland, use an antelope as their crest. This version of their crest, which does not appear in the reference books, seems likely to be an English descendant of one of those who have added the main Hamilton crest to their own ( almost certainly without official sanction).

Price: £65.00

Mercy Ashworth (nee Landell) married Michael Ashworth, an ironmonger from Durham , in 1757 and the couple had at least two shops in the 1770s (one in Durham and one in Newcastle).

Mercy did take up the business, in her own name rather than jointly with her brother, and expanded into silver as well. She registered her maker's mark at the Newcastle Assay Office in 1785 and is noted in their records until 1801. Mercy died in 1822 and is known to have employed noted Newcastle engravers Beilby and Bewick between May 1782 and July 1792- including on spoons. She sold the business in 1803 and died in 1822, aged 88, at Bishop Wearmonth, having survived all of her children.

In 1851 the 74th was sent to the Cape of Good Hope, where their clear thinking saved many women and children also on the same ship (the Birkenhead) when it foundered on the South African coast.

George III Old English pattern saltspoon London 1809 Crossley Smith Duke Ancaster

A George III Old English pattern saltspoon, by Richard Crossley and George Smith London 1810, crested for the Dukedom of Ancaster .
Price: £22.00

Brownlow Bertie, 5th Duke of Ancaster, was born in 1729 and succeeded his nephew to the Dukedom and family estates in 1779. He married twice but on his death in 1809 left no son to inherit the Dukedom and as there were no living descendants of the 1st Duke in the male line the title became extinct. Although this spoon was made after the last Duke's death it is reasonable to suggest that it was made to replace a lost piece or complete an order.
