Offered is a lovely pair of transitional shoulder-less Southern coin silver tea spoons by noted Virginia and Kentucky silversmith Asa Blanchard, circa 1807-15 by style and given their Kentucky origin. The maker's mark on these spoons (mark "d" in Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths", corresponding to mark "29C" in Boultinghouse's "Silversmiths of Kentucky") has only been found on pieces with Kentucky provenances. Each spoon has a legible maker's mark, and each is engraved with a period script "H" monogram. These spoons each measure about 5 5/16 inches in length and the pair weighs about 28 grams altogether. Condition is good overall, with moderate tip wear and some small dings to the bowls, but no splits or repairs. All in all a fine pair of Kentucky coin silver spoons by a sought-after maker, with one of his less common maker's marks!
