This particular pictureback seems to be unique with David. The flower is contained within an ornate scroll cartouche. The image is in excellent condition, retaining its original crispness. So too with the spoon itself: the extended bowl tip is unworn, the oval-end handle having a prominent reverse rib, and with the feathered script mono M L on the front.

New England picturebacks are extremely rare -- none moreso than Rhode Island birds. Only Burr is known to have produced birdback spoons. The bird on this piece is in bold relief, all of its parts intact. The spoon itself has a pointed-end handle with a clearly defined reverse rib. The mono is C * H in shaded block letters, and the length is 5-1/4". The mark is E (pellet) BURR. The bowl tip has a bit of wear, otherwise the overall condition is excellent.

Both examples are remarkably similar -- 0val-end handles, c1790 -- shell drops on bowl backs (see pic), reverse ribs, and both with the same mono, block D over W * H. The difference in the shell drops is quite clear; the difference in the monos is very slight. Both spoons are just short of 4-1/2" in length. The Ewing mark is less well known, but is confirmed here with the addition of the Haverstick mark. (See p...

Featheredged, oval-end handle, short reverse rib, ornate feathered script mono W L on handle front with identifying No. 22 below. Length is 5-1/8" New England birdbacks are extremely rare. The bird on this piece is probably unique - a dove at rest among branches. It is not at all like the Philadelphia birds.

Deep, short front rib on handle, rattail extending 3/4 of the way down bowl, block mono G over I * S on reverse; 7-3/4" in length. Light tipwear, otherwise in excellent condition. We've been able to identify this TA mark by referring to the American Silversmiths Genealogical Project, which you can reach by googling American Silversmiths. This spoon is, without doubt, a rarity among Colonial silver.

Oval-end handle, c1800 -- feathered script mono T H C on front; 8-1/2" long. This spoon is also marked IWG for John Ward Gethen, also of Philly, which presents a bit of a puzzle. Both Black and Gethen were silversmiths, the first starting his career in 1795, the latter in 1811. It could be that Gethen added the piece to his inventory and sold it out of his shop. The spoon is in excellent condition, the extended bowl tip unworn...

VanRensselaer was probably working in Albany when he made this spoon. (He later worked in NYC.) It has a short front rib, and has a tongue and double-molded drop on the bowl back, which is perhaps unique (see pic); mono on reverse is E over I (device) V in shaded block letters. Length is 8-1/8". Condition on this 250-year-old spoon is near mint, bowl tip unworn.
