A military Celtic-point tablespoon, by James Erskine of Aberdeen circa 1802, crested for the Caithness Legion and its colonel Benjamin Dunbar of Hempriggs, Caithness  and initialled BD.
Price:                                                                                                The Caithness Legion was a shortlived regiment raised in 1795 and disbanded in 1802. The Colonel was local landowner Sir Benjamin Dunbar of Hempriggs (1761-1843). This regiment spent the majority of its time in Ireland combatting the threats posed by the United Irishmen and from France. It returned to Scotland following the peace treaty signed with France at Amiens on 25th March 1802 and was disbanded later that year. This spoon seems most likely to have been made in the final year of the Regiment's existence (for further details see an article in The Finial Vol. 26/06 of July/August 2016 by Colin Fraser)

A fiddle pattern tablespoon, by James Pirie of Aberdeen (active 1821-1826) circa 1821-1822 (with otherwise unrecorded additional marks). These are crested for George Thomas John Nugent 8th Earl of Westmeath (1785-1871).
Price: £195.00

                                                                                              In 1822 the 8th Earl of Westmeath was created the 1st Marquess of Westmeath. This title died with him but the Earldom of Westmeath was inherited by his cousin. James Pirie was active from 1821-1826 and the combination of the maker's mark and the engraving suggests that this spoon, and the rest of the set that have come to light, was made between 16th July 1821 when Pirie became a member of the Hammermen's Company of Aberdeen and 12th January 1822 when the Earl was created a Marquess.
