Offered is a lovely set of three early American coin silver teaspoons by watchmaker and silversmith Henry Biershing of Hagerstown, Maryland. Biershing was born about 1789 and was working in Hagerstown between about 1809 and 1843, the year of his death. These spoons measure about 5 3/4 inches in length and weigh about 36 grams altogether. They each have a period engraved block monogram and a clear maker's mark of H:B in a rectangle. They would most likely date to the first ten or fifteen years of Biershing's career. Biershing's work is rarely seen, despite his relatively long career. All in all a fine set!
