Teaspoon by August Shmedtie, Washington, c1865
Forward-tipt fiddle handle, flared shoulders, feathered script mono T C D E on front; 6" long. Condition is excellent. This is probably a rare mark - i.e., not often seen. Shmedtie is listed in the Sept.-Oct., 1989, issue of Silver magazine as having a shop at 445 7th St.
