Fine antique silver basting spoon or serving spoon in the Queen's pattern, engraved with the family crest of a mermaid. George Adams was one of London's finest cutlery makers.

Shells, foliate scrolls and flowers give Queen's a graceful elegance. Like King's, this pattern is credited to the silversmithing brothers John and Henry Lias and introduced about 1825, in the reign of George IV. As on a pack of cards, the Queen design is a more elaborate version of King's with more foliate scrolls and flowers.
