Offered is a very fine large Georgian sterling silver stuffing spoon or platter spoon made by Edinburgh silversmith William Marshall and hallmarked for 1816-17.

There is one very small and shallow dimple in the bowl, and one tiny scratch on the handle. This piece bears clear hallmarks and a well-struck maker's mark, and it is also engraved with a period script...

Offered is a very fine and rare set of six early American coin silver dessert spoons bearing the maker's mark of Andrew Ellicott Warner, Sr., and fully marked with Baltimore assay marks for the year 1819.
