Offered is a good and scarce pair of American coin silver table spoons from Hagerstown, Maryland. Some consider silver from Maryland towns like Hagerstown to be Southern coin silver due to the sympathies of many of the inhabitants. These spoons bear the maker's mark of Thomas Alexander Boullt (1818-1876), a well-known Hagerstown silversmith, jeweler, watchmaker and clockmaker. Take a look at all the pictures In the latter part of his long (1846-70s) career, Boullt was advertising as a jeweler and optician, at No. 16 West Washington Street in Hagerstown. Boullt also had other activities, such as being the Secretary and Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the Antietam National Cemetery. Boullt was instrumental in tabulating the identities and locations of Confederate dead at major battlefields.

Each of these two tablespoons measures about 8 5/8 inches in length and the pair weighs a total of about 84 grams. Each spoon bears a good clear maker's mark (one of at least two marks used by Boullt), and each spoon also has a period engraved script monogram. Condition on these spoons is fair to good, with the bowls somewhat out of round and with some small dings, but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a desirable pair of Hagerstown coin silver tablespoons!
