Offered is a very fine pair of West Virginia coin silver dessert spoons by scarce Wheeling maker Artemas O. Fairchild, who commenced his business around 1839 and after many years relocated to Missouri. These spoons by style should date to the first years of his West Virginia period. Each spoon is engraved with a complicated period script monogram and each has a good legible maker's mark. These spoons each measure about 7 inches in length and the pair weighs about 58 grams. Condition is good overall, with each spoon having some minor dings and dents but no splits or repairs. All in all a fine pair of Southern coin silver spoons by a desirable maker in a desirable size!
