Offered is a lovely early American coin silver coffee spoon or teaspoon by noted New York silversmith Silas White (b. 1754 - d. 1798), circa 1775-85 by style, and probably on the earlier end of that range. This piece has one of White's maker's marks documented at Winterthur and elsewhere, and shares the distinctive drop with other spoons bearing his mark. This piece has a good clear maker's mark and a period engraved block initial monogram. This spoon measures about 4 3/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair as there is a wave in the handle and the stem has a very small stress fissure near the bowl (see picture), though that has not weakened the stem to date. All in all a nice early piece of American coin silver!
