Good Birdback (Faded) Teaspoon by Emmor T. Weaver
Offered is a great American coin silver teaspoon by well-known Philadelphia silversmith Emmor T. Weaver, featuring a quite faded example of his famous eagle-back decoration. Even with the fading to the bird, this is still a very good teaspoon, with nice form and weight. This piece measures about 5 7/8 inches in length, and weighs about 18 grams. Condition overall is very good, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. The maker's mark is clear and crisp. As noted, the birdback decoration is quite faded but still somewhat visible. All in all a fine example of American silver!
