Offered is a nice American coin silver teaspoon in the fiddlethread pattern, made by Wood & Hughes and retailed by Walter Pearce & Company, working in Norfolk, VA circa 1831-44 and then in Mobile, Alabmaa circa 1844-67. This piece would certainly date to Pearce's Mobile period, probably the 1859-67 period. This piece has legible marks and a rubbed period engraved script monogram. This spoon measures about 5 7/8 inches in length and weighs about 24 grams. Condition is fair, with moderate tip wear and surface wear, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of a little-seen Alabama mark!
