Unusual and impressive Dutch solid silver large presentation Spoon; the Finial in the form of a Greyhound, so possibly a racing trophy. Nicely detailed handle with caryatid type figures on both sides, and Coat of Arms of the City of Leiden in the Bowl. The Spoon measures 7.75 long and weighs 77.5g.
The Spoon is in very good condition with no damage or repairs. Dutch Hallmarks including Rampant Lion standard mark, Key mark certified for export, Date letter D for 1888 and maker's mark which I think is JH or H. It also has an Import Hallmark for Chester, 1904. UK buyers can also pay by Cheque or Postal order. Once I know you've got it and are happy, I will leave feedback.
