Offered is a lovely old American coin silver table spoon by a maker who doesn't seem to have been documented, using the maker's mark R.MERRICK in a serrated punch. Examples of this man's work are in the Winterthur collection, with no location posited. It is evident, however, from the crudeness of the punch that a large-city origin point is unlikely. This piece is faintly engraved JK in period script. This tablespoon measures about 9 1/4 inches in length and weighs about 50 grams. The maker's mark is rubbed but legible. Condition is fair to good overall, with some tip and surface wear but no major dents and no splits or repairs. All in all a nice early piece by a little-known maker!
