Pohlamus, NYC, Loius XIV, coin silver teaspoon
1 American coin silver teaspoon in the "Louis XIV" pattern. The pattern is by John Pohlamus, a New York City silversmith who provided Tiffany & Co. with much of its flatware in the mid-19th Century. Marked "PATENT 1847" incuse, "H" incuse probably for Henry Hebbard with whom he worked from 1852-58,although it may be a journeyman's mark, and "TIFFANY & Co." incuse for the retailer Tiffany of NYC. The "H" probably dates the piece to 1852-58, but only if it stands for Hebbard and not a journeyman. Engraved "ASJ" in cursive on the front. Bowl in fair condition with some tip wear on the left and a very slight bend on the mid left.
