SOLD

Offered is a nice early American coin silver teaspoon or coffee spoon decorated in a feather-edge Old English pattern style, with a period block monogram and worn die-struck shell decoration. This piece does not appear to have a maker's mark, but by style can be dated to the 1780-90 period, give or take a couple of years. It measures about 4 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 8 grams. Condition is fair to good, with some modest tip wear and some very small dimples to the bowl. The handle shows some minor signs of use as well, but nothing remarkable considering the advanced age of this piece. There appear to be no splits or repairs. All in all a fine early piece to use or display!
