click for more pictures for item SS998-216

A very heavy early sterling silver tablespoon in excellent condition in a varian of the "Tuscan" pattern, 8 and 1/4 inches long ca. 1868. An interesting piece because it was given as a "memento mori," i.e. a memento of a person's death. Engraved "Adam Sherman" in script on the front and "April 2nd 1868" "Aged 87 Y 1 M 18 Days" on thee reverse in script. Marked "J.T.FOX" and "925" incuse. Possibly John T. Fox of Rochester, but Kovel's gives an earlier date for him.
