A very good early American coin silver table spoon marked W.MILLER with a pseudo-hallmark of an eagle.

A fine and rare American coin silver tablespoon by little-known Zanesville, Ohio jeweler Theodore Schwabe, working circa 1846-58.

Silver bearing Schwabe's mark appears to be quite rare, and this is a good example, with an extremely clear maker's... Click for details
