Offered is a very good and large early American coin silver table spoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and a maker's mark of A.G.PECK.

Scarce Gorham & Co.
click for details
Dating somewhere between the early 1850s and mid 1860s, this 7" long, weighty at just over 1.5 T. oz., fork is stamped "Gorham & Co." and "Coin." It likely was a tea or dessert fork, although it could have been a lunch place piece.

The markings are not readily found, and while a standard motif for the period, the "French Thread" pattern was not one that Gorham seemed to produce in significant quantity, so this is a doubly unusual piece.

It is engraved "A.L. Fiske." in very fine script... Click for details
