Measuring 8 1/4" long, and weighty at 1.9 T. oz., this tablespoon in today's usage, would have been a place piece in its 1833-45 period according to one source, 1841-45 to another.

In her work on Philadelphia silversmiths, Catherine Hollan indicates I[saac] Reed & Son may represent a partnership with "Osmond," 1830-40, or "G. Washington," 1844-53.

The "Reverse Tipt" design on the handle of this 5 1/2" long, not quite .5 T. oz., teaspoon which carries this mark, suggests the earlier years.

The piece presents in a diminutive manner that in its delicacy is appealing. It has a broad handle end, with high, beveled "fins" off the join with the bowl.
