Set of 5 WREATH teaspoons - John Fries, Phila, c1830
The wreath pattern came into existence in Philadelphia about the same time as the sheaf-of-wheat and basket-of-flowers patterns. It never caught on outside Philly. Each of these 5 is in near-mint condition, the wreath crisp, the bowl tips unworn. The mono is L H F in feathered script. They have pointed shoulders and there is a drop on the bowl back. Length is 6".
