Ladle awarded at a Missouri county fair around 1850

Made by E. Jaccard & Co., St. Louis -- at 8-7/8" in length, it is a mid-sized ladle suitable for serving soup out of a small crock, or gravy out of a large bowl, or grog out of a middlin'-sized cup, or perhaps it is an oyster ladle used to pluck the briny shellfish out of whatever they are served in. In the event, it is a neat piece, with a pinched-waist fiddle handle, high pointed shoulders and a 2-7/8" oval bowl, and engraved on the front the letters B.C.A.M.A. -- which most likely stand...

Readers of our little web page know that there's not much coin silver flatware here-- that is, pieces made between 1825 and 1868 in the good old U.S. of A. Why? Because most of it was thin, mass produced, and of inferior quality. Indeed, the majority of what we now see was made in New York, Boston or Philly and simply stamped with local marks.

But then again there are items such as this spoon by Joab Gillett of Cazenovia, a man who did actually work as a silversmith, which... Click for details

New York circa 1750, with round upturned end, spatulate midrib, long elliptical bowl and molded drop, length 7 3/4 inches, weight 1.72 oz. Troy.

There is slight tip wear from right handed use, a few minor insults to the bowl (including a scratch, reverse), and significant wear to the monogram "B / E * E".

Pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, script mono on front; 8-1/8" in length. Condition is fine. Mitchell is not listed in any of the books dedicated to Missouri silver.

Probably by this time, Sam Clemens would have moved east.
