This bait isn't mine (I wish it was!). It is quite simply the most beautiful spoon I have ever seen. I bid £200 for it, but it sold for £320! :eek: I've never seen another like it - I'm guessing late Victorian or early Edwardian from the 'art nouveau' look of it? https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1807...
