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.

Marked A. S. DEVONDORF. Almond Smith Devendorf was a "merchant" in Galesburg from c1845-70. As such, he retailed these teaspoons to O. McBride. According to John McGrew, the bust in an inverted heart suggests that they were made in Connecticut. All 12 spoons are in mint condition -- probably never used. The handles are in the forward-tipt fiddle pattern, with flared shoulders. Length is 6-1/4". Weight is 7.25 T. oz.

This is a rare variation of the coffin-end style, and it appears to be limited to Utica silversmiths. Instead of the handle end being clipped, it was given a notched corner. This piece is in excellent condition, has the feathered script mono EG on its front, and is 9" in length.

William Brady marked this piece, and also marked the location of his shop. Without the town name, it would be assumed that Brady worked in NYC, as shown in the literature. This ladle has a broad downturned fiddle handle, c1820-30 -- high pointed shoulders, and a unique semi-circle drop on the bowl back. The handle is reverse tipt, and the mono is a feathered script E L. It is 9-1/2" long with a 3" oval bowl, and is in excellent condition.
