Pair of antique George III silver basting or gravy serving spoons decorated with bright-cut pattern engraving and in excellent condition. Each spoon is hand engraved with a family crest of the Bligh family.

Bright-cut decoration was most popular from the 1790s to the early 1800s. The edges of each piece are decorated with facets cut into the surface of the silver at different angles so that light is reflected at various angles and the decoration appears to be sparkling - hence the name "bright cut".
