Offered is an extremely rare example of very early Savannah coin silver by the partnership of Isaac Marquand and Cornelius Paulding, working in partnership in Savannah between 1801 and 1810. During this time, Isaac Marquand's nephew Josiah Penfield was apprenticed to the firm in Savannah. In 1810, Isaac Marquand moved to New York, and the firm became known as Marquand, Paulding & Penfield, operating from 1810 to 1815. It operated in NY, New Orleans and Savannah. This coffin-end teaspoon is one of only a few pieces that can be traced to the very first years of the Savannah partnership, circa 1801-05. It is clearly marked with a well-struck maker's mark and has a period engraved "RA" script monogram. This piece measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs about 13 grams. Condition is very good overall, with some minor dings in the bowl but no splits or repairs. All in all a very early and desirable Southern coin silver spoon from Savannah!
