E. Shaw, Philadelphia, Coin Silver Tablespoon

Multiple sources identify a single Edward Shaw as a Philadelphia silversmith, but none of them offers a mark.

Brix lists his dates 1825-30, which would be consistent with the style of this 8 3/8" long, nearly 1.3 T. oz., tablespoon stamped "E. Shaw" in a hatched cartouche. This would seem to provide a conclusive attribution. Catherine Hollan's publication "Philadelphia Silversmiths" is the most recent entry about Philadelphia silver and she indicates the 1850 and 1860 censuses located Shaw... Click for details
