Bernard Cuzner silver serving spoon
A large silver silver spoon made by Bernard Cuzner in 1920.
A very large and heavy serving spoon made by one of my favourite makers. The design used on the end of the handle has geometric patterns similar to those used by Cuzner at this time in his career when he was designing and making for both himself and Liberty & Co. This particular geometric design has an almost Art Deco feel to it.
The bowl of the spoon is much more in the Arts and Crafts style, the bowl itself being hand planished with a “rat tail” join. The spoon is fully hallmarked for Birmingham, 1920.
Weighing in at just under 120 grams and over 9 3/4″ long, it’s the largest spoon I have seen by Cuzner and a real statement piece.
Dimensions: 9 3/4″ long by 2 3/4″ at widest point on the bowl
Weight: Approximately 120 grams
Condition: The bowl has some light scratching, particularly on the underside edge where the spoon would have rested in a dish
