Maltese Roman Standard Silver Soup Ladle. Of plain fiddle pattern form and free of any engravings.
In excellent order with light surface wear commensurate with age.
Marked R for Roman Standard silver (916 parts silver per1000) by Geraldo Pace, circa 1860. The first and third letters of the year mark are rubbed. He was active in the late 1850's and so 1860 is a fair assumption for the date of this ladle.
Approximate weight is 211 grams or 6.7 troy ounces.
Approximate dimensions are 34 cm length and 10.5 cm bowl width.
