Offered is a superb set of three early American coin silver spoons by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. In my view, there is no more elegant expression of American silver flatware of the late 18th Century than that shown by these spoons. The spoons each measure about 5 5/8 inches in length and the three weigh a total of about 50 grams. Each spoon has a clear maker's mark and well-executed period engraved script monogram of 'LW' within an ovoid reserve. Condition is excellent overall, with modest surface wear from normal use, and a few small dimples in one or two of the bowls. There are no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a gorgeous set!

These spoons are available as a set for $275 or individually for $95 - $125, depending on condition.
