This is one of F&G's earliest pieces, made around 1810, before their removal to Philadelphia. Indeed, the Yankee Eagle -- often seen on New England silver of the period -- frames the F&G mark (see pic). This spoon is in near-mint condition. It has square shoulders, an incised pointed arch drop on the bowl back, and a feathered script mono F C C on the front. It is a shade over 9-3/8" long. It weighs about 1.5 Troy oz., or 51 grams. The bowl is completely unworn.
Oval-end handle, block mono M * C on front; 5-3/4" in length. Bird and spoon are quite good -- all the feathers in place and bowl tip unworn.
Oval-end handles, long drops on bowl backs, reverse tipt, block mono A F on front; 8-1/2" long, each over 2 T oz. Condition is near-mint throughout, bowl tips unworn.

Made by Sigourney & Hitchcock, Watertown, NY, for the Jeff. Co. Agl. Soc. (see pix). Watertown is the center of Jefferson County in upstate NY. Description of the spoons is as follows: forward-tipt fiddle handles, flared shoulders, 6" in length. Condition is very good - a few bowl dings and very little wear. Agricultural premium silver is always interesting as an artifact of 19thC rural American history.
Pointed-end handles, pointed drops, ornate feathered script mono E G on front; 6" long. Excellent condition, extended bowl tips unworn.
Pointed-end handle brightcut its entire length, slashed drop, feathered script mono E R in cartouche on front; 5-7/16" long. Lamson presents a bit of a mystery, although he's listed in various books -- Belden, Flynt & Fales, "Maryland Silver," etc. Thorn gives a pretty good representation of his initial mark, which is picked up by Kovel, and is shown in one of the pix associated with this piece...
