Offered is a very sought-after table spoon from the heavy and luxurious American coin silver fiddlethread pattern made by celebrated Philadelphia silversmith Thomas Fletcher, circa 1827-42. Fletcher's fiddlethread is probably the height of quality for this pattern in America prior to the Civil War - it is uniformly excellent, and heavy. It virtually always has a well-done period script monogram to the reverse ("SHS" on this piece), making it quite possible to build a full service in this pattern, as the monograms are discrete and usually very similar - most appear to have been engraved by the same hand and are roughly the same size and same orientation. See my other listings for a long-handled condiment spoon in this pattern.

This piece has a clear maker's mark, as well as the aforementioned period script monogram to the reverse. This piece measures about 9 inches in length and weighs a very heavy 103 grams. Condition is very good, with minimal wear, a few tiny scratches from normal use, and no dents, splits or repairs. Please review all the pictures. All in all a superb example of Fletcher's coin silver flatware!
