Lovely Philadelphia Coin Silver Teaspoon Circa 1850
Offered is a good American coin silver fiddle pattern teaspoon by the well known firm of Robert & William Wilson of Philadelphia. Surprisingly little is known about this firm, despite its prominence and the great numbers of spoons and other pieces that survive bearing one of the firm's marks. This piece measures about 5 13/16 inches in length and weighs about 18 grams. Condition is very good overall, with minimal surface wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a nice piece for a gift or for everyday use!
