Syracuse's Joseph Seymour's pattern flatware is well-documented and the inventory does not include the "Thistle" design on this 5 1/2" long, just touching 1.0 T. oz., teaspoon. It is thereby an unexpected rarity, and doubly so because of its impressively artful portraiture.

The design, die work, and finish are all to the highest standard. There is a central thistle blossom midway on the handle, and a pair at the tip, all surrounded by leaves. A pair of leaves also graces the backside of... Click for details
