Offered is a very good and large early American coin silver table spoon bearing a period engraved script monogram and a maker's mark of A.G.PECK. Little is known about the silversmith behind this mark, although an A. G. Peck was listed by Knittle as working in Ashtabula, Ohio circa 1823. Such a date would certainly fit this piece, which could have been made in Ohio based on style. It should also be noted that an Asahel G. Peck, silversmith and jeweler, born about 1820 and died around 1904, wa...
