Offered is a nice New Orleans coin silver tablespoon by Horace E. Baldwin & Co., who had a retail shop on Chartres St. in New Orleans in the 1840s. This piece came with some Alabama silver from an estate in Mobile, and presumably was purchased by the original owner in New Orleans. This pieces measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. It has a good maker's mark or retailer's mark and period script monograms to the front and back. The same engraver appears to have done both sets of initials. Condition is good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. The spoon is a little over-polished and may have been lightly buffed. All in all a good useful New Orleans coin silver tablespoon!
