This fine solid silver hallmarked Christening spoon was made by the renowned Elkington & co of Birmingham in 1960 and restored by Edinburgh Silver in 2019
Photograph one shows the condition we receive silver christening spoons in, usually from auction – this one is in particularly poor condition and very badly tarnished. This is what happens when a piece of silver is left in a drawer for decades.
Restoring Of The Silver Christening Spoon
Photograph two shows the spoon after we have removed the decades of grease and the worst of the tarnish, still a long way to go.
Our Full Range Of Silver Christening Spoons
Photograph three shows most of the years of tarnish is almost gone, and our secret formula has been applied to remove the blemishes and scratches – looking good.
Photograph four shows the spoon after our industrial ultrasound treatment. The spoon is now very clean and free from all grease and tarnish – nearly there.
Photograph five shows the spoon after the final traditional polishing is complete – it looks as if it was made last Thursday not nearly sixty years ago.
