The silver basting spoon was first introduced in the 17th century, although examples from this period are very rare. Originally designed for basting roasting meat, they are more commonly used nowadays as serving pieces, and are often made in popular flatware designs of the period. Basting spoons by the best flatware makers such as George Adams, or Jackson & Fullerton, are highly sought after, along with early 18th Century examples and rare patterns.
