Antique George 111 Mote Spoon Dated Circa 1760 London Assay William Lilley
Mote spoons were used for skimming dust motes from the surface of a cup of tea (a common problem for tea drinkers at a time when the product was carried in wooden chests) and the long tapering, pointed stem was used to unblock teapot spouts.
This particular spoon has a hand pierced bowl with a flower basket motif which dates the spoon to the 1760's as picture backs were popular at this time period.
