SOLD

Offered is a good and rare early American coin silver spoon bearing the maker's mark or retailer's mark of Philip Price, Jr., a clockmaker and watchmaker who entered business in Philadelphia in about 1812 and who stayed in the watchmaking and allied trades line until about 1825, when he turned to printing and other pursuits. This piece probably dates to the 1820s by style. It is graced with a period engraved script monogram and has a very clear strike of Price's mark. The mark on this spoon was used for the book "Philadelphia Silversmiths" by Catherine Hollan. Please take a look at all the photos. This piece measures about 5 1/2 inches in length and weighs about 15 grams. Condition is good overall, with modest surface wear and some dings to the bowl, but no splits or repairs. All in all a fine spoon with a very uncommon mark!
