Ea. $75, Set of 5 $300

Downturned fiddle handle, no shoulders, drop, shaded old English S on front; 5-1/2" long. Condition is excellent. Franciscus worked in Baltimore from 1810-18, and from 1819-40 in Lancaster, PA. These spoons are fully marked with a shield, the dominical letter A (which denotes 1815 as the year it was made), and the head of liberty. It is rare to find Franciscus silver so clearly associated with Baltimore, the city of his birth.
