SOLD

Offered is a fine group of three American coin silver egg spoons by the noted Philadelphia firm of Bailey & Co., circa 1863. Each spoon has a full set of marks for Bailey & Co., as well as manufacturer's marks presumably for George Sharp, and a tiny engraved date of 1863 to the reverse. This date is likely contemporaneous with the period script monogram inside the shield on the front of each spoon, and these pieces were probably given as a gift at a wedding or other important occasion. Each spoon has a gilded bowl and the gilding is essentially unworn. Each spoon is very well decorated, to pleasing effect. These spoons each measure about 4 1/2 inches in length and each weighs about 12 grams. Condition is excellent overall, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a fine set!

These spoons are available for $25 each or $65 for the set.
