Offered is a scarce example of the work of Nashville, Tennessee silversmith John M. Smith, circa 1835. Smith had at least two maker's marks, and probably worked for a number of years, but seems to have advertised in only one instance. This piece bears what is probably the later of his two marks, and the punch was worn and chipped by the point this spoon was struck with the mark, so perhaps toward the end of his working career, around 1835. This tablespoon measures about 8 7/8 inches in length... Click for details
