George III Silver Salt Spoon, S. Hougham, 1799 George III  Georgian Silver %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
This is a good quality George III Sterling Silver Salt Spoon in the classic Old English pattern. The spoon has the initials W N C W elegantly engraved at the top of the stem.

The spoon was made in London by renowned silversmith Solomon Hougham and dates to 1799. Charles Hougham registered his mark at Goldsmiths Hall in London in 1769. He was a fine silversmith who primarily produced spoons and flatware but also some other good pieces of tableware. Charles’ brother Solomon took over the business after Charles’ death in 1793 and expanded the range of items they produced. Around 1818, Solomon went into a brief partnership with Solomon Royes and John East Dix, who continued the business after Solomon Hougham’s death.

Condition is very good, with no dings or dents, no salt corrosion and just the superficial surface wear that you would expect after 225 years of good service. Please make sure to view all the photographs.

The salt spoon is 9.3cm / 3.6ins long and weighs in at 8.4g / 0.29oz of solid Sterling Silver.

The hallmarks, on the underside of the stem, are nice and clear to read. They show the lion passant for Sterling Silver, the London date letter D for 1799, the George III duty mark and the S H makers' mark for Solomon Hougham.
