Condition is mint.

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...

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.
