Offered is a nice example of a coin silver spoon evidently made as a toy or for the use of a small child, measuring 4 3/16 inches in length and weighing about 7 grams.

This piece has no maker's mark, but by style it should date to the 1825-50 period. It has some wear and small... Click for details
