A rare set of six George III antique Newcastle silver Hanoverian/Old English pattern dessert forks.

The dessert forks are most unusual as they are made from this early period in Newcastle.

This is the first time we have had dessert forks. We have had plenty of spoons from the period and a few sets of table forks.

The forks are a little longer than is usual for dessert forks of this period and they are in excellent condition with a fine patina.

Dimensions: length 18.2 cm; weight 7.3 troy oz.

Dorothy Langlands

Dorothy Langlands (née Storey) was an English silversmith.

Dorothy was the daughter of Charles Storey of Soho. She married John Langlands II, whose family were the most prominent silversmiths in Newcastle-upon-Tyne . Langlands’ husband died in 1804 and after his death, she registered a mark of her own, although the exact date of registration is unknown. Classified as both a goldsmith and a jeweller, she was active until 1814, with an address on Dean Street. She is among the best-known of the silversmiths from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, not least because she was a woman.

A George III tea set crafted by Dorothy Langlands between 1809 and 1812 is in the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
