Offered is a nice Canadian coin silver master salt spoon by William Norris Venning (b. 1795 in England, d. 1877 in New Brunswick), circa 1840. Venning worked circa 1819-71, so this salt spoon could a few years earlier or later than 1840. This piece measures about 4 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. It has an engraved period script monogram and a legible maker's mark. Condition is good overall, with some modest signs of use but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of this mark, sometimes mistaken for that of an American silversmith!
