I am looking for information on the name of the family crest for a large fiddle stuffing (?) spoon. From the marks, we believe it to be made in 1854 in London by Chawner & Co (maker's mark is GA for George Williams Adams). It is a demi lion rampant that is not holding anything.
Does anyone know which family this represents?
I have a fork with a similar demi lion rampant that we believe was also made in London by Chawner & Co but in 1964. The only difference is that the lion is holding a star and we strongly suspect that it is from the Luard family, as my husband is descended from that family. Perhaps the crest on the 1854 spoon is an earlier or different version of the crest on the 1864 fork?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
