Offered is a rare example of the maker's mark of George Collier Robbins, before he moved to California and then on to Portland, Oregon, where he opened one of the first jewelry stores. He also served as an early mayor of Portland. In this case, the spoon can be tied to St. Louis by the fact that that place-name is incorporated into the mark. The maker's mark or retailer's mark on this piece is legible, despite a stress in the spoon that runs through the mark. There is no monogram or sign of ...

Offered is a quite uncommon example of the maker's mark or retailer's mark of jeweler and watchmaker David A. Smith, working in St. Louis, MO circa 1839 and in Carthage, MO circa 1846. This maker's mark is known both with and without a separate ST.LOUIS town mark. In this case, the maker's mark is the only mark on the spoon, and as such the spoon could have been produced for the St. Louis or the Carthage market. The mark is clear and legible (see all pics). There is also a worn period engrav...
