15" ladle by Fletcher & Gardiner
This piece was probably made in Philadelphia, c1815-20, after the dynamic duo had left Boston. It has a downturned fiddle handle, square shoulders, an oversized drop on the bowl back, and a reverse rib on the back of the handle. Mono is MSA in a feathered script on front of the handle. An oval bowl is 4-14" at its widest point. The ladle is quite hefty -- over 6.5 T oz. Condition is minty.
