Charles II Irish Silver Spoons

Exceptional pair of Charles II Irish silver trefid spoons, made in Dublin in 1663 by Sir Abel Ram, and the earliest pieces of Irish silver we have ever handled.

Listed in Jackson (page 625), and documented by Dr. Ticher.

Just over 8 inches long, monogrammed I*G on the reverse. One with maker’s mark only, one with maker;’s mark,┬áHarp Crowned and date letter.
