Set of 3 teaspoons marked Tryner in arc cartouche -- pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, feathered script L H on front, 5-3/4" long. The pinched-waist style is, of course, typical of the midwest. The name Cornelius Tryner was found in a search of Ancestry.com. He is listed as a 23-year-old jeweler in Maroa, Macon County, Illinois. All 3 spoons are in excellent condition, extended bowl tips unworn.

Mustard ladle, c1810-20 -- This is a 4-3/4"-long piece with an extraordinarily long (2-1/2") fiddle; it has square shoulders and a tiny (3/4") oval bowl. Mono, as shown, is T E C in feathered script. One would think that a smith, or a partnership of smithies, with a 3-letter mark would be easy to find. Not so. We went thru the B's in Kovel and other silver books to no avail. Then we did the same with the A's, thinking it might be a 3-person partnership. Still no luck. Shame, that...

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...

We come across these small coffin-end ladles -- mustards, gravy, sauce -- from time to time and they all seem to be made in New England, particularly in the City of Providence. It is for that reason (and the lack of any other candidate) that we attribute this neat piece to William Burr (see pix of WB mark). This ladle has a cut-cornered fiddle end and is 5-1/4" long. The mono is C L in feathered script. Condition is excellent throughout.

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.

Set of 6 forward-tipt fiddle-handled teaspoons with flared shoulders. Feathered script mono J.L.C. on front; 5-7/8" long, excellent condition. NOTE: In putting together the book on North Carolina silversmiths, Cutten assumed that the N.C. following the Hanna mark referred to North Carolina, and that silver found with the mark was made by an unidentified NC smith. Not until some years later did the truth out...

On the basis of style (wide stubby fiddle handle and unusual high angular shoulders), we've attributed this piece to B.B. Hastings of Cleveland. The ladle is 6-1/8" long and the mono is I.A.A. in feathered script. Aside from an incompletely struck mark, condition is excellent.
