DESCRIPTION Scarce antique Provincial Irish Georgian solid sterling silver Fiddle pattern mustard ladle with a frontal monogram engraving. Note the unusually long terminal, a feature found mostly on pre-1800 provincial Irish silver flatware. These would be very early for London Fiddle pattern but Fiddle came from France and the Irish were early adopters with Dublin Fiddle noted from 1758. For geographical reasons much Cork silver was made from imported Spanish dollars.
SILVERSMITH William Reynolds, could be father or son from this date. Both used similar marks and were working simultaneously in Cork during the early 1790s with William senior thought to have died in 1795.
