Baltic Captain Spoons
A silver spoon made in Revel, Estonia in the 19th Century.
These spoons are known as Captain Spoons. They were given by merchant houses & agents as recognition of a successful voyage and the cargo arriving safely.
This one is marked for Herman George Clemens, the city mark for Revel and the number 13 indicates the fineness of silver.
This particular spoon was given by Thomas Clayhill & Son who were a forwarding company. Clayhills originated from Dundee. The few I have found online are later dated than this one which is 1818.
Length 22 cm. It is a good weight but is less than the 925 silver standard.
