The makers mark is an "I "star" P". Maker is unknown to me. There is no date mark. Usually when I see Irish initials with a star between the letters, the piece dates to the 18th Century.
The style of the piece is indicative to the late 18th Century to early 19th Century. Very fancy piece with repousse fruit in the well and a hand pierced bowl with engraving. The handle is a corkscrew shape called Onslow or scroll. Georgian pieces with the Onslow scroll handle are scarce and very collectible. This pierced fruit ladle is over 200 years old.
Very good condition for age. No dents, dings, or repairs. Some stubborn tarnish in crevices. Upon close inspection you may notice some very minor light scratches and light wear from normal use and age (typical for pieces of this age). Fabulous example of an Irish Georgian sterling silver with scroll Onslow handle..
Guaranteed a Georgian period piece that is over 200 years old. Measures about 7 long and the weighs about 85 grams (weighed on Postal scale).
