CORK. A very fine & rare set of six George III Celic Point Teaspoons made in Cork circa 1800 by Joseph Gibson.

This rare set of teaspoons are modelled in the slender "Celtic Point" design and are beautifully engraved with bright cut borders and a navette shaped cartouche, with chevron above. The cartouche contains a contemporary Crest. The Spoons are in excellent condition and display thick tips to the bowls. Each is well marked on the reverse with STERLING and GIBSON. This is a design peculiar to Ireland, however Cork examples are very rare, especially a complete set.

Length: 5.45 inches, 13.63cm.
