Offered is a good pair of early American coin silver teaspoons marked R.Wilson in script, for Robert Wilson, silversmith of New York and then Philadelphia, prior to his death in 1824. Mr. Wilson's sons, Robert and William, went on to great success after Robert Sr.'s death, establishing one of the most prolific silver manufacturing operations in the first half of the 19th Century. Robert Wilson Sr.'s work is typically marked with a maker's mark of RW in an oval, and is usually recognizably New York in style - this script full name mark and transitional style is much more rare. These teaspoons each measure about 5 3/4 inches and the pair weighs about 30 grams altogether. Each spoon has a well-executed period engraved script monogram, and each has a faded but legible maker's mark. Condition on these spoons is good overall, with some surface wear and light tip wear, but no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a good example of a hard-to-find maker's mark!
