Small ladle, Prague 1785 or 1795

Postby AG2012 » Tue Oct 20, 2020 10:15 am

L 20 cm, weight 130 g, 5 cm across the bowl, monogrammed L.
Marks:
13 Loth in oval used in Prague 1776 - 1806
Re-marking, mainly 1806 – 1807 for taxable big articles that have already been stamped.
Prague town mark (crowned lion rampant) with the year, either 1785 or 1795.
Maker`s mark AD unknown to me.
What was the use of those very small ladles (punch, sauce…)?
Can AD maker is Prague be identified?

The period of peace, 1806–09, again saw Austrian preparations for war, this time directed by a Rhineland German in Habsburg service, Johann Philipp, Graf (count) von Stadion,who spent years in a strenuous and partly successful attempt to reorganize the disordered finances. (He founded Austria's central bank Oesterreichische Nationalbank in 1816).
In 1806 he suggested to the Emperor of Austria to issue a manifesto providing for taxation and duties on gold and silver. A new mark (Repunzierung) was introduced as acknowledgement of receipt of paid taxes.
The Assay Office code were: A Vienna, B Prague, C Salzburg, D Lemberg, E Cracow, F Brunn, G Linz, H Graz, I Klagenfurt, K Leibach, L Trieste.
The obligatory re-marking of old articles was abolished on August 1, 1807.

In my eyes your ladle is an ordinary sauce-ladle for the dinner table. The size indicates that . You need to find a suitable sauce-boat to it ;-))). Of course you can use it for whatever liquid dessert like compote like hose also suggested.

I think the maker is Andrej Dejl [Ondrej Theil] (Master 1766, died 1799). The mark is not an exact match, but he appears to be the only maker with the right initials at the right time.

Ref: Josef Hrasky, Zlatnici Prazskeho Baroka (Prague: Decorative Arts Museum, 1984), p. 68, Prague Old Town maker #176.
