Offered is a scarce example of the work of Nashville, Tennessee silversmith John M. Smith, circa 1835. Smith had at least two maker's marks, and probably worked for a number of years, but seems to have advertised in only one instance.

This tablespoon measures about 8 7/8 inches in length... Click for details
