Please see images and read condition description. Please keep in mind when. Wonderful sterling silver Sheffield English replica anointing spoon by John & William Deakin. Hallmarked to the side including a date mark of 1900. The spoon still has all original and sharp detailing remaining as you can see from the photos and in excellent condition for its age.Great holiday gift for any collector, especially as we approach the coronation of King Charles IIII. Some history on the original spoon, probably the oldest item of Royal Regalia and is believed to date from the 12th century. Holy oil is poured from the Ampulla into the anointing spoon and the Sovereign is touched on the hands, breast, and the crown of the head. This is the most spiritual part of the ceremony. And represents the confirmation of the peoples' choice. These replica Anointing Spoons were produced for collectors. Normal surface marks consistent with age, and under a loop I see 2 small dents on top of 2 of the 4 round tops near the bowl. I believe the original spoon has pearls in that area. Some very minute traces of gold wash. Measures about 6.75 long and weighs 35 grams. Items I sell are not new. They have been used so do not expect mint condition unless otherwise noted. Measurements are approximate and may not be totally exact. This item is in the category "Antiques\Silver\Non-U. The seller is "royal_pelican_antiques" and is located in this country: US.
