Rare Lancaster, PA Tablespoon by George Haverstick
Offered is a rare early American coin silver table spoon by Lancaster, PA silversmith George Haverstick (b. 1788, d. 1824). Although silver from George's brother William is encountered fairly often, that of George and of his brother John is quite uncommon. This is especially the case with a large tablespoon like this one. This piece measures about 9 7/16 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. Condition is good overall, with moderate wear to the surface but no major dents and no splits or repairs. The maker's mark is a little rubbed but still quite legible, and there is a good period engraved script monogram. A fine piece of early Lancaster silver!
