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.

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.
