SOLD.

Offered is a rare pair of early American coin silver table spoons by Easton, Pennsylvania clockmaker and silversmith George Bush. Mr. Bush apprenticed to Christian Bixler from 1806-12, and worked in Easton from 1812 through at least the mid-1830s. This pair of spoons each have a period engraved script monogram of "MT". This pair also has a good clear maker's mark on each spoon. Condition is very good overall, with the bowl of one spoon slightly out of round and having a few dimples, and the other in good form. There are no major dents and no splits or repairs. These heavy tablespoons each measure about 9 1/4 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about 110 grams. All in all a fine pair of early Easton silver spoons by a fine silversmith!
