This piece is a 5 7/8" long, just over .7 T. oz., teaspoon was made by Sperry Douglas Brower who was an Albany silversmith and manufacturer of repute and substantial size.

Examples of his work are readily found, although that is not the case with his "Medallion" pattern, which this is, as instances of it are scant. In fact, Don Soeffing in his work on Medallion silver shows two spoon examples and states they are the only pieces he had seen.

This example features a right facing, slightly... Click for details
