Offered is a lovely and scarce long-handled Alabama coin silver condiment spoon, perhaps a spoon for dry mustard, by the well-known firm of L'Hommedieu Brothers, working in Mobile circa 1842-61. This piece has a very clear, well-struck maker's mark and is engraved with a period script monogram. It measures about 5 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 10 grams. Condition is good overall, with some small dents or dings in the bowl, and a slight waviness in the handle, but no splits or repairs. All in all a nice example of a scarce form in Southern coin silver!
