Although a small island with a population just in the thousands, Bermuda was home to a small number of working silversmiths in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. One of the was the maker of these tablespoons, George Hutchings. He was working on the island in the first half of the nineteenth century.
These bowls of these spoons are in poor condition, showing heavy wear from use, but the maker's mark is clearly struck and there are nice contemporary initials of 'JLA'.
They measure approximately 21cm long and weigh a combined 100 grams.
