Waterbury CT circa 1840, length 7 1/4 inches, total Troy weight 6.67 ounces, fine condition, monogrammed "H.A. Shiels" obverse in period script.

Though this mark would appear to be previously unpublished, we are attributing it to Horace, since the only other possible firm might have belonged to Hiram Hotchkiss, who would have been ten or twenty years old when Fiddle Thread was in the height of its popularity.

Offered is a good American coin silver tea spoon by Philadelphia silversmith Samuel Hutchinson, working in that city circa 1828-39.
